How to Hit a Home Run in Softball


The Kurt Gibson. Drawing by Joe McKendry.

I have been playing softball for years, and I have the same stroke that I had back in my baseball years. It’s decent, and gets me a lot of base hits, but never a home run or anything close. It would be nice to send the ball sailing sometime though. So I googled “how to hit a home run in softball” and found this new grip and advice for stance and mechanics at the plate. I’ll be trying this out on Thursday. I’m skeptical but hopeful that it will be as easy as it sounds to hit a dinger.
