There are many baseball hitting tips. However in regards to tips for hitting a baseball, none better than this - When you hit the ball your head should face down Your nose should line up to the middle of the ball. This gives the hitter direct vision to the ball with both eyes. A great tip for hitting a baseball.

If you want to go to the "Show" (major leagues) you need to practice this technique. Notice the female player's head (San Diego State University Student Athlete) remains down where she made contact with the ball. The ball has left her bat. Yet her head & eyes remain exactly where her bat made contact with the ball. A helpful tip to the hitter - leave your head down where the bat made contact with the ball for 1 second. This prevents " looking up to soon " to see where the ball is going before you actually hit it. Looking up to soon before contact creates a multitude of problems for the hitter. Please remember, when your head and eyes go down to hit the ball - you see the ball, because you see the ball better, your bat takes a natural path to the ball, because of the natural path, you increase bat speed,, power, force and energy. Winding up with better balance throughout the swing and the finish.
