Change the course of a game with a single swing by learning to hit for power.
Rawlings has partnered with Ripken Baseball to produce a line of tools for its 5-Tool Training Program that will help you or your Little Leaguer improve your hitting for power.
Every 5-Tool Training product
includes drills and instructions to help you improve your baseball or softball performance. Popular tools to improve your hitting for power are listed below. They will also help improve your batting average.
A 1-mile-per-hour increase in swing speed equals a 7-foot increase in distance the ball travels, so improving your power can make a real difference in your game.
