As a kid we were always tossing a ball up to ourselves and hitting fly balls or grounders to our friends as a game. I see this in boys, but I very seldom see young girls tossing the ball up and hitting. I have a 10 year old DD that I am trying to help become a good hitter. She plays 10u Travel ball now. My question is do you think that the skill of being able to toss the ball to yourself and hit it where you want it to go translates into better hand eye coordination and subsequently helps to make a better hitter? I am interested in what some of you knowledgeable guys on this forum have to say.
