Try just swinging it with more thrust in the hips and getting your arms around more effectively, practice daily even if you're not hitting a ball, but DO NOT use a doughnut if you want speed it will actually just slow you down.
The bat drop you choose depends on whether you want to increase your speed or power. Choose a larger one for more speed and a smaller one for more power.
to gain more speed
its the weight of the bat the heavier the bat the further the ball will go the same in fast pitch softball
the heiver the bat the harder it is to swing and hit the ball so a lighter bat will have more speed and power
to bat in it
The Rangers Josh Hamilton with a bat speed of 110-115 mph.
By Speed Radar !!
The maximum speed in which a softball can come off the bat at in mph. (The bat's composition or structure is designed to limit the speed of the ball off the bat to 120mph)
Yes,the material has an effect on the speed of the ball.Actually,the speed of metal bat is faster than wood .
it depends on the pitch speed and the batters swing.
A metal bat will hit the hardest because metal is 85% stronger than a wooden bat.
corking makes the bat lighter so you can swing it faster therefore generating greater speed at the point of impact with the ball, transferring more speed to the ball as it leaves the bat, causing the ball to fly further (provided you don't break the bat and look like a fool - corking a bat weakens the bat as well as making it lighter).
