How Can a Training Bat Improve Your Swing?

Adding variety at every baseball or softball hitting practice not only makes training more interesting, but it can also help a hitter focus on the individual elements of their swing, break out of a hitting slump or work on increasing speed and power with every hit. The Tanner Tees team has assembled a collection of some of the best training bats for hitters and coaches to build power and create challenging hitting drills during batting practice

Build Power and Speed with Bat Weights and Weighted Bats

Every coach knows that adding constraints during hitting practice will help the hitter develop skills and power. A bat weight is a time-tested way for players to increase strength and then translate that to a more powerful swing. Tanner offers three innovative alternatives to the old school donut weight, which some say can interfere with a hitter’s swing. The versatile Hitting Knob Bat Weight clicks on and off the knob of most bats allowing the hitter to do bat weight training with their favorite game bat or training bat. The CamWood bats have a unique built-in weighted knob just above the hands which helps minimize the casting effect and other common mechanics issues, while building strength and speed. The CamWood Hands and Speed Trainer and the CamWood One Hand Trainer do double duty as weighted bats that also reinforce the perfect baseball or softball swing.

Use a Training Bat for Proper Swing Mechanics

Using training bat or practice bats can help a hitter and coach work on the fundamentals of good swing mechanics by emphasizing specific elements. Bats like the ProVelocity Bat, Sequence Trainer Bat and the Insider Bat all focus on the swing path and provide visual or audible feedback to the hitter so they immediately know when their swing is right, and when it’s not. Other specialty training bats such as the CamWood Hands and Speed bat, designed to help baseball and softball hitters increase their swing speed while maintaining good mechanics and the RopeBat which is a training aid that used centrifugal force to help a hitter connect, correct and perfect their swing, can enhance your hitting drills from youth ball through to professionals.

Don’t Forget the Training Balls!

Adding different types of balls into your hitting training is a great way to elevate your hitter’s batting practice. Tanner offers a variety of high-quality training balls for use in hitting practice including small baseballs, heavy weighted rubber training balls, soft rubber training balls and even variety packs with several of the most popular Tanner training balls.
