-stand side ways, bat up and do not take your eyes off the ball
-try hitting the ball 3/4 way down the bat
-if you usually do very powerful bats and get the ball very far (the opponents will back up and prepare for you to belt it) instead just tap it to the side of you ;) it suprises them and they all leg it forward to reach the ball by which time you are ATLEAST half way around.
-sometimes it is better to take a 'no ball' than go back and bat again.
-move your foot forward when you swing your arm.
-look where you are aiming the ball
-do a powerful ball (it makes the opponents have a more powerful bat which, in my opinion is a lot easier to catch then a weak ball)
-help out your fellow fielders e.g. Your team mate needs to get the ball to 4th base but is far away, signal for them for them to throw the ball to you and you throw it to 4th.
Fielding the base-
The most important bases are 2nd and 4th. These people need to be able to catch and be aware of what is happening at all times.
-BE SURE TO ALWAYS STUMP YOUR BASE!!!
-you need to have quick reactions
-must be able to throw the distance between the bases accuratly e.g. From 2nd base to 4th base (you are much more likely to get your opponent out)
-you must be able to catch a ball e.g. If a batter hits the wall but it goes behind them.
-you must be able to throw to the 2nd base.
-must be able to think fast in which base they need to send the ball to.
-must be good at catching!! -do not be scared of the ball!!
-must be good at throwing long distance.
-depending on whether the batter is left or right handed move around the field -your feet are not glued to that patch of grass!
-must react quickly to were to send the ball.
