Good Sayings For Communicating With Batters in the Box.

Good Sayings For Communicating With Batters in the Box.

Players should Know All Hitting Terms.

"See it out, See it in, See it off!" - Tells the hitter to keep the head down and see the ball out of the pitcher's
hand, into the strike zone, and off the bat!"

"If it is close enough to call, its close enough to hit!"Reminds a hitter with two strike to swing at anything close. Do not go down "looking".

"31-Zone, Nothing Above, Nothing Below!" The batter with a 3-1 count is looking to hit a perfect pitch to hit in a tight zone. The batter should lay off anything above or
below that zone.

"Base Hit, Ball Four, Something Good For Us On this Pitch". The batter has a 3 ball count. The batter
is looking to hit the pitch hard or get a base on balls.

"Don't Guess - See, Read & React" Tells the batter who has two strikes to even the stance and hit anything close. Do not gues or look for a certain pitch but rather hit the ball "where it is pitched". Pull or Punch.

"Nothing Above the Hands" If a batter has a tendency to chase high stuff out of the zone, this reminds the batter to start with the hands at the top of the zone
and do not chase anything above those hands.

"Squash The Bug" or "Shoelaces to Pitcher" - The correct action of the hitters back foot.

"Trigger"-The hitters final inside turn movement before the swing.

"See The Ball Flat"-See the ball until it goes flat against the bat and comes off.
