The SB401 Fast Pitch Softball Training bat was developed by former 11 time National Champion UCLA Softball Player and Coach and Softball Hall of Famer, Sue Enquist (http://sueenquist.com/ucla/born_bruin.html). This training bat has a very short barrel with a small sweet spot. It is designed to be used for short toss and tee drills to help the player develop a short, direct, hands inside the ball baseball type swing rather than the long loopy swing many softball players have. By keeping the hitters hands inside the ball, they can develop more power and wait a little longer on the pitch and hit the outside pitch to the opposite field, a feat not possible with a long rotational swing. The SB401 softball training bat is currently being used by over 80 Division I Softball programs and is an integral development tool to any players daily regimen.
