The top hand on the grip is the hand that takes the bat to the ball. It is important to develop strength and skill with this hand.
To do this we do a one-handed isolation drill. The batter uses just the top hand. Gripping the bat at the top of the grip and using the bat like a tomahawk, the batter tries to get over the top of the ball and hit it into the ground.
The batter has a coach or player soft toss the ball above the waist. The batter hits the ball from the top and drives its straight into the ground.
