The role of drills in hitting is to address the hitter building his swing as well as the player maintaining his swing. Coach Cleary's goal when practicing hitting is not to hit the ball hard, but practice a swing that will translate to success in a game. Drills provide help in two areas; correcting faulty swings and building and maintaining good swings. Before drill work, Cleary breaks down the batter's set up. He uses a tool called the 'magic wand' that helps him isolate parts of the hitter's body to make corrections. Other tools used during drill work include the stride box, the tire, tees and soft toss. The goal for hitters is to be sound mechanically so their only job is to attack the pitch and the pitcher!
