Howard Dobson shares twenty-seven of the drills he uses at all levels of the game to build better hitters starting from the ground and working up.
These are the same drills he uses with his hitters at LSU. Dobson provides a thorough explanation of how to correctly perform each drill - including any variations. He explains drills to work on every aspect of the swing working from the ground up, starting with the legs and moving on to the upper-body.
Lower BodyPower for hitting comes from the ground. By leveraging their legs correctly, your hitters will maximize their power in every swing. Coach Dobson introduces several drills that will develop your hitter's lower body.
These drills help the hitter get their legs in the correct position and set them up for a correct load, stride, and weight shift. Each drill is designed to help the hitter recognize the correct feeling associated with whatever hitting skill is being taught.
Upper BodyDevelop your teams' ability to make consistent contact with the ball and stay long through the zone. Coach Dobson introduces drills designed to teach the hitter the correct grip, path to and through the ball, and finish. He shows how proper hand placement during the swing brings the contact point out in front of the body allowing the hitter to have better control of ball placement.
Dobson also shares a few drills he uses to improve a hitter's bat speed, which is an important component for power.
Using Coach Dobson's innovative drills, your hitters will develop the feeling of a correct, mechanically sound swing, which will ultimately help them reach their potential and put runs on the board.

I think this DVD is outstanding. I purchased both Dobson hitting DVDs. Both are great but this one is really special. I have all the Tschida videos and even coached with Tschida. But Dobson gave me many drills I was not familiar with from my Tschida days. They are pretty much all tee drills but gave me great variety. This DVD could be purchased alone. You don't have to purchase them together but I thought they were both worth the money.
Currently I coach high school in a bad weather state so I appreciate all the tee drills. Again these were not the same drills I had seen from Tschida or the Mizzou hitting video. Great variety with one of his LSU players demonstrating. Great ideas for new simple gadgets for drills- like tire blocks and using a rope. Great drills to work with those bug squash/sit and spin kids in order to get them out of that. Great drill for outside pitch work that I had not seen before. An awesome idea about hitting with wood and a camwood bat and a regular bat just to vary up the weight of the bat you use and size of sweet spot. Great video. Worth every dollar. It's not a baseball swing vs. a softball swing. It is just hitting. Great point by Coach Dobson.
