First post on the forum, so I hope this is in the right place.
I'm wondering how many left-handed slap hitters are actually right handed. My DD is very fast, tiny, not much upper body strength and has always hit right-handed. She is almost 11, and in the backyard likes to try hitting left-handed, and surprisingly enough makes contact more fairly often while hitting lefty. If she has real interest in trying to be a slap hitter, is it worth investing in a hitting coach? As a hitter, she has a good eye, her hitting has improved a lot and she has occasionally hit leadoff (more because of her speed and OBP than getting hits, though). But she is usually a bottom of the lineup hitter.
Thanks for any advice!
