Softball Tips: The Hitting Routine Hi I’m Jesse Hutchins, former USM first baseman and CoachUp coach. And this, is my hitting routine. Hitting is a very pressure-filled skill, so having a routine to calm you down prepares you for any pitch that might be thrown. So for my hitting routine, I start out by putting one foot in the box. After that, I spin the bat and I find one spot to look at on the bat. My other foot goes in, bat goes around, rested on my shoulder, and then into my stance.
