Youth Baseball Strike Zone & Plate Discipline Drills: Hitting Guide Launched

Baseball Whiz, a website providing baseball tips and training aids, recently published a new guide for young baseball players who want to improve their hitting.

In its new guide, Baseball Whiz teaches young players how to better understand the strike zone and provides them with several drills they can do to improve their plate discipline. The guide also includes links to Baseball Whiz’s “Beginner Hitting Program”, a comprehensive course designed to boost hitting, increase power, and refine timing at the plate.

According to the guide, the first thing young baseball players have to do is develop their understanding of the strike zone, which is the area between the batter’s elbows and knees where pitches are turned into hits. Baseball Whiz believes that having a strong feel for where this strike zone is located enables young players to choose better pitches to swing at.

“Understanding the strike zone in depth allows batters to make more informed choices,” explains Coach Whiz, author of the guide. “If they know what a decent pitch looks like, they’re less likely to go after poor ones, resulting in fewer strikeouts and more walks. This is a straightforward idea that can significantly improve their game.”

To develop this understanding of the strike zone, Baseball Whiz recommends that young players do drills that sharpen their patience and timing. For example, incorporating a tee that holds the ball at different heights forces them to concentrate on making clean contact. Hitting soft tosses from the side serves a similar purpose, but has the added challenge of making contact with a moving ball.

Once strike zone understanding has been established, Baseball Whiz argues that young players need to have strict plate discipline. This is the ability to not only wait for the right pitches but also control their bat speed and swing path when they go for pitches. One drill they suggest young players try is attempting to hit markers or targets in the outfield either from a tee or a soft toss.

“Knowing the strike zone and having good plate discipline makes you a better hitter because it allows you to be more picky, swinging at pitches you can handle and ignoring those you can’t,” says Coach Whiz. “This not only increases your chances of getting on base but also puts you in better counts where you’re more likely to get a pitch you can hit hard.”
