ROPE BAT® INSTRUCTIONAL VIDEO
Led by Professional Softball Player, AnaMarie Bruni @anabruni.softball
FIND YOUR GRIP
Adjust the grip indicator ring to the correct bat size. This will match the barrel to the sweet spot of any sized bat.
Position hands to choke up at the grip indicator ring.
Hitters who use a 33 or 34 inch bat should position their hands at the end of the handle.
FIND YOUR STARTING POSITION
Position the Rope Bat® over your shoulder with the barrel between your shoulder blades.
Hands should be up by your collarbone (just as they would be with a real bat).
Do not let the barrel hang off the back shoulder or drift away from the middle of the back.
Begin with a few slow swings to get the feel for the Rope Bat® and then work your way up to swinging with full force.
Keep the rope on your shoulder for as long as possible during the swing. It will release during the turn.
Start with a tee and then work up to soft toss from the side or underhand / overhand from the front.
GET IMMEDIATE FEEDBACK & SELF-CORRECT
The Rope Bat® forces correct swing mechanics and will give the hitter immediate feedback so they can self-correct.
- Strong, solid contact with the ball = A GOOD SWING
- No contact or weak contact with the ball = A SWING THAT NEEDS CORRECTION
See the power of the Rope Bat® as your hitter self-corrects and develops a powerful, connected swing!
