The ball is small and fast. Less than a 3 inches in diameter and moving at around 80mph or more in most cases. You have to have a good eye just to be able to make contact. If you can make contact, then you have to be able to have enough power in your swing to send the ball flying at least 320 ft at the foul line or as much as 400 ft at center field to make it over the wall. This means that you have to swing hard on the ball in order to get enough force to send it out of the park.

You also have to hit the ball at the sweet spot of the bat.
Hitting a home run is very tough. You have to make perfect contact, right swing, great bat swing, and right circumstances. Many people don't have the physical strengh or fundamentals to hit a home run. The circumstances have to be perfect.

### How do you hit a home run?

To hit a home run you really have to work hard. It really depends on the bat that you use to hit with. if you hit with a crappy Demorini, you will probably not hit a home run. If you hit it with a new bat or a composite in mid-condition, you have a good chance of hitting one out. You have to watch the pitchers "window". The window is where the ball is released from the hand of the pitcher. When the ball hits the window, you must start your stride towards the pitcher. Then naturally hit the ball. Hope this helps!
