Derek Jeter - Hitting Approach

May 24, 2024
  • Always looking for a Fastball - down the middle
  • Trying to hit everything into the right-center gap
  • This approach gives you more time to react & adjust
  • Trying to sit on a curveball only made him jump at the pitch and yank it foul
  • By letting the ball travel farther, he was able to do more damage on off-speed pitches and keep them fair more often.

⭐️ As pitching gets better, the farther you progress, sitting on pitches becomes harder and harder. You might get away with it in HS, but developing a 1-pitch approach is more conducive to long-term success.
