    I shag balls during batting practice occasionally. Maybe I should start my own youtube channel.

    Hasn't your daughter built up enough "equity" in her hitting to be trusted to straighten herself out? Or at least trust in whoever has worked with her in the past?

    10U DD Need Some New Bat Advice

    The obvious answer is to buy both bats.:)

    Ha. Derails always welcome. I think I watched the pitcher you are talking about at "nationals". Tall, blondish hair?

    Not sure if this worthy of a "shameless brag post" or not, but I thought it was pretty cool. 12 year old DD hit 57 and was consistently at 56 at pitching practice last night. The weird thing is, this jump in her velocity (from around 52 mph) was brought on by a hover board crash that hurt her...

    Strong drive vs quick drive Cue

    Yes. His name escapes me right now. There are a few local girls (St. Louis) that make the drive up to see him with good results.

    Strong drive vs quick drive Cue

    I watched a Facebook live video from a Tincher instructor a few months ago, and this lines up with what he was teaching. He was much more interested in the quickness of the drive rather than the distance or power off the rubber.

    Were you able to clock her, and if so, did the results match your expectations?

    Pure barrels or cut!

    I'm totally using this at work. "What do you mean incomplete data? Extrapolate People!"

    Pure barrels or cut!

    Of course I see good posture and sequence in a major league swing. Especially when watching slow motion video. What I don't see, is anything about posture or sequence in any of the popular hitting demos. (I'm sure there are some out there, but the ones that get referenced on this site the most...

    Pure barrels or cut!

    The problem I have with this, is that they say "swing down to the ball". They don't say "swing down to ball with proper sequence and posture from a FYB leveraged position". This all gets added by other people. So, if I'm to listen to the great hitters I would have to teach "swing down to the...

    Pure barrels or cut!

    I believe it's close enough to a full swing to make her point....which is swing "down to" the ball, which she clearly demonstrates at the 6 minute mark. I mean I'm listening to the words coming out of her mouth and watching her demo.

    Pure barrels or cut!

    It would be helpful if she actually said she is "isolating a body part". However, she is literally saying swing down on the ball and demonstrates it using a full swing, and at the 6 minute mark she demonstrates chopping down on the ball to create backspin. Do I need some kind of decoder...

    Pure barrels or cut!

    it's been awhile since I watched it, but as I recall in that video that she is indeed thinking chop down on the ball to create backspin, which is what she demonstrates.

    The Travel Softball “Game”

    This blows my mind. Are you saying their inflated ego is based on their DD's performance? I find that really funny, but I have a weird sense of humor. Luckily I haven't had to deal with it yet.

    Someone explain to me the obsession with "knee drive" for hitting

    The ground starts the swing? Interesting concept.
