When it come to developing a good stance, there are two very important factors that need to be expressed. The purpose of the stance is to afford you the best opportunity to see the ball. Secondly, to have enough balance so that you can take a mighty swing at the ball, giving you the best opportunity to hit the ball hard somewhere. The two actually go hand in hand. That is, if you are in good balance then there will be less of a chance that you are moving your head around during your swing. If you are not moving your head, then you will see the ball better and naturally have greater success hitting the ball. Having said that, that’s not the see we are talking about just yet. Head movement, and its effect on your success as a hitter will be discussed in detail later.
