If you are paying for hitting lessons or have worked with a batting coach, that's all well and good, but here's a secret some of the batting coaches might not tell you. Switch from metal to wood. Hitting with a wood bat exposes flaws in your swing. No longer can you get "lucky" and miss a pitch but still drive it. You'll not be able to get jammed but fist a ball out to right for a single. Now that spring baseball seasons are coming to, or have come to and end, we recommend you put away that aluminum bat for the summer and hit with nothing but wood until the next season begins again. And which are the best wood bats? We found them for you right here. Old Hickory is top of the line and used by Mike Trout.
You don't necessarily have to fire the batting instructor, but the best advice he could give you is to hit with wood.
