Is Slapping Dead?
So, what I have been hearing trend in the softball world is that slap hitting is dead.
Now, you know this irks me every time I hear this. I hear that because defenses, technology and coaching are better that there is no need for slapping.
Now, I will go on the record and say a one dimensional slap hitter is definitely dead. If you don’t have a short game tool and big game tool you will have a hard time surviving at the elite level.
This is why I harp on developing athletes as triple threats. An athlete who possess short game and big game tools. A true triple threat can bunt, slap and hit!
- Have so many options
- Have something to pair vs all pitchers and field surfaces
- Makes a line up more dynamic
What are your opinions on slap hitting being dead???
We must continue to develop more triple threats and prove that having slap tool is NOT dead!
