I play softball, and from personal experience, walk-offs, wrist snaps, and pitching with a weighted ball really helped me gain streangth and speed. Walk-offs is when you walk into ur pitching motion, thus helping you kick your leg out farther, and giving you more speed. For the wrist snaps, its basicly holding your arm and pushing the ball into a net with only your wrist, no arm motions or anything. You can buy a weighted ball at any sporting goods place, and you can also use it in any drill.

Nothing will make you hit that fast; it's just physically impossible. However, you can get your speed up by increasing your strength, speed and reflexes. The first can be done by weight training, using a gym and bat weights, and reflexes can be bettered by training with a ball-gun.

Bat speed is the major reason batters can hit balls deep in the outfield. Aside from bat speed drills make sure to increase core and thigh strength to help with the rotation. Bat drills should help on increasing speed and not to hinder it so it's not advisable to swing a heavy bat.
