Video 1: Footwork

Here, we debunk the common misconceptions about slapping fundamentals, beginning with where to start in the box. Learn about the correct lower body mechanics to set slappers up for success, even before they hit the ball. Ever been out on a bang-bang play? You’ll want to watch this.

Video 2: Slapping stance

Moving from the lower body to upper body, understand the proper positioning for slappers no matter which tool they use. Elbow mechanics and core engagement are crucial to executing any slap, and we’ll teach you exactly how those pieces fit together.

Video 3: Soft slap

Be The Momentum teaches three tools for slappers, and this is the first to utilize in your arsenal. How slappers “get on top” is a crucial key to the soft slap and we’ll talk about the correct bat angle and contact point as well as when and how to use it. This tool is crucial in opening up holes and putting pressure on the defense.

Video 4: Hard slap

One of the most misunderstood aspects of slapping, this tool is broken down to teach you the correct fundamentals so slappers aren’t running through the box with their full swing. Learn to utilize this slap as a complementary skill to hitting, as opposed to a fusion between the two.

Video 5: Bunting

Slappers should be showing bunt at least once a game, but it’s often one of the most under-practiced skills (yet somehow always expected to be perfect!). Here, we’ll go through hand and barrel position, as well as incorporating the bunt as a lethal weapon instead of just a sacrifice.
