Has your hitting gone into the tank?  Here are some thoughts on what it takes to maintain your hitting skills.  These are worthy of consideration.

WHY YOU CAN’T HIT!  The average baseball/softball player practices hitting only 33 seconds per day! Baseball/Softball season lasts 16 weeks at the high school level.  If you practice 5 days a week, 2.5 hours per day, this would total 80 days of practice per season or 200 hours total.  Half of this time (100 hours) is spent playing scheduled games.  Of the remaining time (100 hours), 50 hours are spent practicing defense, and 50 hours are spent practicing offense.  Generally, 15 players divide the 50 offensive hours, giving each player 3.5 hours or 200 minutes of hitting practice per season.

If the player does not play other sports, the player actually practices about 33 seconds per day per year, a musician practices no less than 3.5 hours per week or 182 hours per year.

Basketball players practice shooting and tennis players practice hitting 40 times as much as baseball/softball players practice hitting. Most Olympic athletes practice 4-6 hours per day, 300 days per year, or 1,200-1,800 hours per year.  The Average Baseball/Softball Player Practices Hitting Only 3.3 Hours Per Year!  Kevin Seitzer, former third baseman for the Kansas City Royals, worked out 6 days a week in his off season, and hit at least 300 balls a day.  Jim Lefebver, former hitting coach for the Oakland A’s said, “At spring training, Tony LaRussa and I got together and decided that the only way for our team to be successful would be for them to swing a bat 200 times a day.  We didn’t care how they did it, live pitching, machine pitching, tee, soft toss or dry cuts, just so they got 200 swings a day.”
