Grip Pictures
Other than the first picture, all of these are acceptable grips. Notice that in each of the correct grips, the 2nd knuckles on each hand are lined up, and the wrists are pushed together.
Bad Alignment Standard Grip (Corrected) One Finger Drop
Six Finger Six Finger Interlock Tapered Bat Handle
Overlap - Front View Overlap - Back View I recommend tapering the Bat handle if your association allows it. It helps the hitter get more out of their front forearm. Combine this with the dropped pinky on the front hand, and the bat and the front wrist work together.
