Contact Point Locator The Contact Point Locator is used in batting practice for the purposes of providing exacting feedback regarding the ideal place for the bat to make contact with the pitch. It gives the hitter a precise location for where he or she should hit an outside pitch, an inside pitch or a pitch down the middle. After the hitter swings and makes contact, they then place the CPL on a spot on the ground representative to where he or she thinks they hit the ball. It then is used by the hitter’s instructor to show precisely where the swing made contact with the ball. With continued use the hitter gains proficiency in squaring inside, center cut, and outside pitches at the precise point that the swing is most effective and powerful.
