Coach, player, blogger, and student of baseball and softball Paul Petricca highlights how torque can boost performance in the batter’s box in his new book, “Hitting with Torque: For Baseball and Softball Hitters” (published by Archway Publishing).

The idea of torque – the turning or twisting force that causes rotation around an axis – and its role in hitting is the central topic in this guide for baseball and softball players. The book includes a simplified description of the individual hitting mechanics that comprise the baseball and softball swing in Eight Hitting Keys. Other topics include how to prepare to be a great hitter, the mental approach to hitting, hitting tips and drills, and Petricca’s thoughts on respecting and loving the game of baseball and softball.

“The internet is filled with confusing information on hitting. I hope this book takes the mystery out of how to hit or how to coach hitting to players of all ages,” Petricca says. “I also believe that young hitting instructors could use this book as an invaluable coaching manual. I am happy to share my 25+ years of coaching experiments and success with a new generation of coaches who love the game like I do.”
