Nylon "lightweight" bat designed for T-Ball and older players.

  • The T-Ballers now have a lightweight bat that allows them to perform the ZingBat Drills effectively
  • Older players can now perform the isolation drills described below:

Zingbat makes every swing count!

Zingbat Isolation Trainer Drills

Major league, college, and top high school players all practice lead arm and top hand drills to isolate proper arm path and hand action. The Isolation Trainer reinforces all the fundamentals learned using the Zingbat and provides the hitter with instantaneous feedback during every swing. With each swing, the Isolation Trainer forces the arm to take the correct path keeping the hand inside the baseball. The wrist must snap the barrel at the correct instant or the patented Zingbat "click" will occur before contact.

The drills below demonstrate the workout

 

Drill 1: Lead Arm Dry Swings (Stop at Point of Contact)
The hitter takes a one-hand grip in his/her normal stance, uses full leg action, and swings the Isolation Trainer to the point of impact. The bat should stop right in the middle of the strike zone when visualizing hitting a pitch over the heart of the plate. The click should occur right at the stopping point. Repeat the drill 10 times.

Key Points:

1. Keep barrel above hands: If hitter tilts shoulders and flares his or her elbow, the click will occur before contact point.

2. Arm bar: If the hitter bars his or her lead arm at the elbow, the arc of the swing will be wider and the click will occur before the point of contact.

 

Drill 2: Lead Arm Dry Swings (Full Swing)
The hitter takes a one-hand grip in his/her normal stance, uses full leg action, and swings the Isolation Trainer to follow through. The bat should click right in the middle of the strike zone when visualizing hitting a pitch over the heart of the plate. The click should occur right at the same point as it did in the previous drill. Repeat the drill 10 times.

Key Points:

1. Lead elbow: The lead arm should almost reach full extension before the wrist starts to uncoil.

2. Finish: The wrist and hand should move the bat the last 90 degrees through the point of contact to follow through with a minimum of shoulder movement.

 

Drill 3: Top Hand Dry Swings (Stop at Point of Contact)
Repeat Drill 1

Key Points:

1. Keep the elbow in the slot: If hitter rolls his/her wrists early, the elbow will move away from the shirt and the click will occur before the contact point.

2. Point of contact: The top hand elbow should still have flex and the palm should be facing the sky.

 

Drill 4: Top Hand Dry Swings (Full Swing)
Repeat Drill 2

Key Points:

1. Tophand Push: The elbow must travel in the slot while the wrist remains cocked. This allows the barrel to stay in the plane of the pitch and creates backspin at contact.

2. Finish: The wrist and hand should move the bat the last 90 degrees through the point of contact to follow through with a minimum of shoulder movement. The wrists rollover well after the point of contact.


When you master the mechanics to hit fastballs in the middle of the plate, you can work with dry swings and full swings to learn to pull the ball and drive it to the opposite field.
