Tip No. 1 Hip Rotation
In baseball, power hitting has to come from your hips. Have you ever noticed the major league pitchers and how much hip rotation they generate to throw those 100 mph fastballs?
Well, shouldn’t you do the same in baseball to generate 100 mph bat speed? It is baseball, so you have a great deal of time to wind up and watch a pitch come in before swinging your bat. Take advantage of that and work to get your hips rotating as you swing at the baseball.

Tip No. 2 Release Top Hand
This next tip for baseball hitting has to do with the follow through of your bat swing. As your bat swings through the strike zone and just after connecting with the baseball, you should release your top hand off the bat.
If you are a right-handed batter, your right hand will release as you end your swing. The bat will continue through the swing motion and follow through swing, but you will only be using your left to hang on to the bat as your torso rotates as far through the swing as comfortable.
