Wiffle Ball StackTeework Tuesday
Work on your bat path to the ball. This drill is good for everyone! All you need is a tee and a bucket of 12 inch wiffles—balls need to be larger than the barrel of your bat for this drill to work.
Make sure you stretch out and take at least 5–10 warm up swings before doing drill work.
Equipment: 12" wiffle balls, tee
Setup: Stack two wiffle balls on top of one another on the tee
Start from your normal stance and make contact with the bottom ball. When done correctly, the top ball will fall down and land on the tee. Work on getting good extension and pushing through the ball to drive it up the middle. Finish high.
This is one of the most difficult drills to do consistently, but it will help your bat path to contact become more consistent. Once you get the hang of it, see how many you can get to land on the tee in a row and let us know how you do!
Some of the Rage girls mastered the Wiffle Ball Stack at their team batting practice last weekend. They worked with baseball wiffles and the long stick to help focus on bat path.

Having trouble making good contact with the right ball? Here are some tips:
- Make sure you're not dropping your hands when you load and unload.
- Work on getting full extension and pushing through the ball before you finish your swing.
- Don't pull your head out! Keep your eye on the ball as you swing through contact, then finish high.
