    I am blue in the face asking her to keep her hands up. Any suggestions on drills to help with this. I think it is so locked in to her muscle memory she does not even realize it.

    Is this hitters elbow stuck/stalled? Why or why not?

    My DD does it on just about every swing. I have tons of clips to demonstrate it. Rear view is the easiest to see it. Here is just one of many.

    And a rear view. This was right at the end, told her I wanted her to swing really hard. Wanted to see if that would make her knock the back ball off. She did not but almost came out of her shoes with the hip thrust.

    I know there was some disagreement about the value of the Mota 2 tee drill but I thought it was worth a try especially since CP felt it helped his daughter. Elbow is still pinned to the side. Have a feeling that is a habit that will take awhile to break but she is more aware of it now and does...

    She also slaps but I wanted to make sure she learned how to hit from the left side as well. Way too early to lock in as only one thing in my mind.

    She can not throw from the left side at all. Ugly I mean really ugly. Don't have any right side video. She has not taken a swing righty since we made the switch. Interestingly she was a more consistent hitter as a righty but has more power as a lefty. Despite the significant swing flaws she has...

    We work with high medium and low tee. The high tee is supposed to help with keeping the hands up. Think I picked up that from a post here. I will take some move the tee further out front and take some new video. Here is a swing with the low tee:

    Totally agree with the lacking any extension. She overcompensated from an all arm casting swing when she first turned around to lefty. Now she always looks like she is jammed and the swing is almost all hips with the arms just coming along for the ride.

    Messing with Kinovea to try and illustrate hand path to her. My first attempt but I think this could be a useful tool. https://youtu.be/22XiEKaFcQI

    Yes. Has been the #1 area we have been working on. Wish we had the magic elixir but even when we make progress with the tee swings the lowering returns as soon as we get to a moving ball. We just keep plugging away and hope it clicks eventually.

    That is more like the angle he is looking for. Her backward lean gets extreme sometimes.

    Not me tossing the ball. As she moves further back he throws progressively harder and harder. These swings are from the closest distance, about 10 feet. Don't know who nemo is but that ain't him

    Some front toss swings from today. Coach had her driving the back knee up after swing trying to take out the backward lean she has been getting.https://youtu.be/xukoAPoLWgQ

    Thanks for all of the great info TDS and Eric. Lots of good stuff to digest and start to incorporate.

    Swing Feedback

    Thanks TDS. Shockingly I think I see exactly what you are saying. Have not been able to put into words or pictures nearly as well as you just did. It will definitely help me to communicate it to her better
