Is the baseball swing different than the softball swing?

An Elite Swing is an Elite Swing. There is no difference between the mechanics of an elite baseball and elite softball swing.

"In my time as a college & professional softball player in the NPF and as current hitting coach in Division I softball I have worked with many incredible hitting minds, Matt Lisle being at the top of that list. The immediate improvement hitters see after working with him is unprecedented, and I highly encourage any hitter or coach to learn as much as they can from Coach Lisle."

Coach Lisle also genuinely cares about each player and rejoices with their accomplishments and builds them up when they struggle. Thank you Coach Lisle for helping our daughter attain her goals!"

Coaches: The best way to grow and improve as a coach is to surround yourself with coaches who are more successful than you are ... See MoreSee Less

The approach that we like to have when at bat is what we call "Aggressiveness under Control”.

H.A. Dorfman gave a perfect example in regards to how to do that at the plate. He says, "Every car has an accelerator and a brake. The accelerator represents aggressiveness - helping you get to where you're going. The brake represents control - assuring that when you get there, you're in one piece. Gas pedal and brake are necessary to appropriate operation of the vehicle, as both aggressiveness and control are essential to successful hitting. You see hitters are like a car. And the car's movement starts by hitting the gas pedal first. That's aggressiveness. A hitter's first thought before going to the plate should be about making good, solid contact. She anticipates a pitch she can hit and is ready for it when she sees it. She does not anticipate taking a pitch, because then, seeing a pitching in the hitting zone, she'll be surprised by it. Aggressiveness is her operative approach. On the other hand, her "control' is based on using her eyes when she gets to the plate. That's how she steers the bat to the ball. She hits the brakes only when she sees a pitch she does not want to swing at. Her eyes are essential for that discipline. That control.”
