Tip No. 9 Pinky

Drop your pinky off the bat handle so that your pinky is actually wrapped around the bat knob itself or just below the bat knob.  The purpose to this is to create a slightly more leverage when swinging the bat (using a bigger moment arm).  By doing this the bat will be ever so slightly longer (meaning when you swing the head of the bat will be farther away from your body).  I won’t get into the physics of angular momentum, but essentially this will increase your bat speed.  It won’t increase it much, but we will take every little bit that we can.
