High School Hitting lesson, Part 1

The video linked here is part 1 of a hitting lesson given to the Jesuit high school baseball team by Phil Swimley, retired coach from the University of California, Davis. The message centers around why it's important to get the bat on the plane of the pitch, keep it there as long as possible, and have it there when the bat is going it's fastest. This is an excerpt from the iBook, Practice Baseball to Win, where you will find more drills and instruction ideas.
