Bat grip
Anyone had any luck with your batting grip changes? I just started reading about the notion that knocking knuckles aligned on the bat create more bat speed. Iím looking more for accuracy. I need to experiment with varying grips I guess. I hit 625 last season and looking to better it to 750.

There are so many different types of grips, just have to find what works best for you. Personally, I drop my bottom hand pinky off the bat and overlap my top hand bottom two fingers over my lower hand...but, I swing for power

It takes a lot of batting practice to find out what works for you. It has taken a while but I like dropping my pinky finger, and dropping two fingers over my lower hand. You just get more snap in the swing, and more control than a full overlap with all fingers. Just experiment.

I changed my grip from traditional baseball to overlap...it took me about 6 months of tee work n doing grip exercises before I was confident to use it in a game! Alanís a great resource for further info. Aloha, Fabe

I put more pop into my swing by leaving the bat head behind my hands, and snapping my wrists a split second before contact.

Hanging two fingers off the top of the bat can take a lot of practice to get used to, but will give you a longer swing to increase bat speed.

I assume you're talking about putting two fingers right over the bat knob, and then placing two fingers over your bottom fingers?
