Develop a Better Swing
Driveline Mini Hitting PlyoCare® Balls (or “Mini Plyo Balls ®”) help athletes evaluate their swing path and give instant feedback on the quality of their contact. The slight overload of the balls increases the level of difficulty for athletes to produce an efficient ball-bat collision.
How to Use Mini Hitting Plyo Balls ®?
Mini Hitting Plyo Balls ® can be integrated directly into daily hitting drill work. We recommend starting with tee and front toss, then progressing to firm overhand toss.
Off-Set Front Toss: A Hitting Drill Example
We use both baseballs and Mini Hitting Plyo Balls ® for this and many other drills inside the facility. With Mini Plyo Balls ®, hitters will generally progress from tee work ➡ underhand front toss ➡ overhand toss. The variation of the incoming trajectory and speed makes for a challenging/adaptive training environment. This type of environment accelerates mechanical improvements and reinforces existing positive movement patterns.
