Baseball Tips

Buy a glove that fits you and is suitable for the position you are playing. Outfielders normally have slightly longer gloves; while, infielders have gloves with smaller pockets. Make sure to break your glove in. Playing catch is the best way to break it in.

Select a bat that is suited to you. Bats come in varying lengths and weights. They are also made from different materials. Find one that feels comfortable when swinging. If you have to use too much force to swing, then you should select a lighter bat and visa versa. Being comfortable with your bat is the first step in becoming a great hitter.

Learn the strike zone. Avoid hitting bad pitches that are too high or low in the strike zone. Don't be overly aggressive. Focus on hitting the ball to put it into play. Keep your eye on the ball.

Look at the spot where the ball is going to leave the pitchers hand. Don't make the folly of looking at the pitchers eyes, that's not where the pitch will be coming from. One way to practice this is to take batting practice without swinging. Just watch the balls as they leave the pitchers hand to the catcher's glove. Try to see if you can tell which pitch is coming and where it is going. This will help you develop your pitch recognition skills.

Always believe that the next ball hit is coming to you, otherwise you can be caught flat-footed. Be attentive.

Before each pitch, have your knees slightly bent and your back straight. When the ball comes to you, look the ball into your glove with your head up. Make the transition from your glove to your hand using a two finger grip. Throw the ball with an overhand motion keeping your non-throwing shoulder pointed towards the intended fielder. Follow through.

When pitching use a comfortable and balanced motion. Otherwise, you may injure yourself during the delivery. Drive off the mound using your legs in an over-the-top style.

Proper rest between pitching sessions is essential to prevent injury. The motions used to pitch are not natural to the body so extended pitching without rest can lead to shoulder, elbow, wrist, and/or knee problems.

Practice the way you are going to play. The things you do in practice will carry over to game time. Don't be lackadaisical during batting or pitching practice as once you develop bad mechanics they can sometimes be hard to unlearn. Pay attention during practice, if you catch your mind wandering off during practice, chances are it will happen during the game as well..

Remember to have fun. It is just a game after all. If you take baseball too seriously, you miss the main point of the sport. So relax, try your best, and don't be afraid to fail. You can't win every game.

Always pay attention to your base coaches when running the bases. Your third base coach has a better view of what's going on and will guide you whether to keep going or to stop. No worse feeling than getting thrown out at home after running through your 3rd base coach's sign.

Avoid the temptation to be overly aggressive. Keep a level head and simply focus on putting the ball in play.
