Among the most commonly used baseball hitting drills we can mention the colored ball drill and the pitch behind drill. In the first case practicing the drill means getting more active in the plate’s actions while using some differently colored baseballs. The pitcher should use a certain colored ball that the hitter should not see. Once he threw the ball he has to name a color which should be or not the color of the thrown ball. The hitter has to take no action but to swing if the pitcher has named correctly the color of his ball. The second example of baseball drill refers to making the batters who tend to back out when the pitcher throws the ball to stay on their position and get more confident in hitting the ball.
