How to hit a baseball gets really down to the nitty gritty of do you really really care or want to know how?

One of the first things you should do is canvas all the baseball players you know. Ask them to show you how to hit a baseball. Pay particularly close attention for you see they

may have the whole answer. They each one in his or her own way will give you their version of what you must do to know how to hit a baseball. You might even find one or two which duplicate some of the mechanics of how to hit a baseball.

Let me ask you a question or so about what you found out during this quest to learn about how to hit a baseball. Did anyone tell you to pay close attention to the placement of your elbow when in the hitters stance awaiting the next pitch? How about this one how many instructed you to place your feet an exact way when you stepped into the batters box to get ready?

How many of your ball players told you, "You must remember to always hold your head steady to be able to hit the ball?" Did anyone tell you to stand real close to the home plate or to stand well back deep in the batters box? Do you remember any of these players saying, "You must always swing your bat level when striking at the ball." How about this one , "Spread your feet as far apart as you can and still be comfortable to swing your bat."

All of that instruction you received coming from different people most likely was all different. Of all the things you were told which one did you feel natural , relaxed and confident that it would definitely make you hit the baseball?

If you tell me one thing for sure that you remember and know will make you hit the baseball then for goodness sake put it in your memory bank and calculator called your brain for it will indeed help you accomplish and know how to hit a baseball.

All the rest of the how to hit a baseball you gathered is just so much "PHOOEY."

Here are some names of some of the best baseball hitters who ever played the game of baseball and you tell me me which ones listed had the same style, same mechanical swing of the bat , same stance, same position in the batters box etc etc.

Babe Ruth, Ty Cobb, Joe Dimaggio, Stan Musial, Barry Bonds, Honus Wagner, Nap Lajoie, Hank Aaron, Wee Willie Keeler, Mickey Mantle, Carl Yastrzemski , Roger Maris
