How do you hit a home run in slowpitch softball?
Form is the key to success. You will see much smaller players hit farther than there larger peers because they have proper form. What is proper form you may ask. In softball I would recommend you have your legs a little more than should width apart. A little bend in the knees but not much. Hands should be relaxed on the bat. I prefer to keep my elbows up so I do not drop them when I swing. You want to swing up at the same angle the balls is coming towards you. Do not drop your elbows! You top hand should come off of the bat as you hit which creates a whip like action with the bat. This will send the ball over the fence.
The home run in softball is the same as in baseball. When the batter hits the ball over the outfield fence in fair territory it is a home run. It is also considered a home run if the batter hits the ball inside the fence and is able to run all the bases and back to home plate before being thrown out.
After the batter has successfully hit the ball with the bat in fair territory she must be able to touch all bases with out being put out and successfully reach home plate (not necessarily rounding all the base with one hit). A success touch the home plate is a score or known as a run in softball or baseball
