In this video Henry Fall and Dana Finkelstein review tips on alignment and aim using alignment sticks.
A great way to get in the habit of setting up your swing, especially when you're hitting into a net from home, is to use alignment sticks (or even tape if you're hitting off a turf mat) to create a consistent reference point.
Henry and Dana recommend using two parallel lines with one at the heel and the other between the toes and the ball to create a reference point for aim and alignment.
The primary advantage of practicing this way is that it gives instant visual confirmation you're squared to the ball with your shoulders, hips, and feet. It's especially helpful when you don't have the benefit of tracking your ball down the range and is an excellent way to get the most from your off-season practice.
