Mic’d Up With Mandy: Shelby Friudenberg Talks Hitting Approach


Baylor softball currently has one of the most prestigious hitters in program history, Shelby Friudenberg, who owns the career record in home runs, RBIs and home runs hit by a freshman.

The Bruceville native shares her brilliance at the plate with Mandy Knight, by demonstrating four different hitting techniques, on the first edition of “Mic’d Up.”

“That’s where you’re going to generate the most power, ” Shelby Friudenberg said. “You’ve got to be balanced, not too much up here or too much back here.”

The senior elaborates on her batting stance at the plate, and goes into detail, how to approach an 0-2 count.

“…I’m staying choked up a little bit, going to keep my hands close to my head, so I don’t drop them too much on this pitch…” Friudenberg said, right before driving a ball deep into the atmosphere.

The first baseman also breaks down the mechanics on hitting an inside and outside pitch.
