I was just wondering how you can make every swing count, whether it be on a tee or batting practice. At my practice yesterday I could feel myself drifting off on some of my swings, when I know I shouldn't be. What can I do to make every swing purposeful?
You're exactly right. Just think about how many swings you can take on a tee and subtly you start making mistakes and creating bag swing mechanics. However if you focus on specific mechanics that you want to improve on, you're much more likely to have positive muscle memory on a tee, rather than just "taking cuts on the tee".
You can check out this tee and see if it fits what you are thinking about. Depending upon what "drifting off" means to you, here are two different drills that you can do.
One is called the firm front side drill.
And the other is called the stay inside the ball drill
