    Default Top College Hitters from 2017....

    Was wondering if anyone has links to video for what you consider great swing mechanics from College players from 2017.

    Have 12u DD that is a pretty visual learner is why I ask and she would love to see women raking the ball and not MLB players.


    Thanks ahead of time

    Google and youtube are your friend. Why are you limiting yourself to 2017?

    O.S., I think he is asking which ones we would recommend.

    That leaves my kid out. No video for you. LOL
    My opinions here are simply that, My Opinions. I'm an ex expert. I no longer care to have to be right.

    I would suggest posting a video or two of your DD hitting. There are some good swing analysts on here and they may be able to recommend a college player with a similar hitting style to emulate.

    Westwind, yes I was looking for recommendations as I am unfamiliar with College Softball players currently.

    Jad, No current video at the moment... cage set up for her travel team is not the best spot for video from where us parents are during practice.
    Will have some Video probably next week when I can take her to another location a buddy owns for baseball.

    She is a righty at the plate... No Stride hitter.
    Fairly certain DD has All Back All Forward going on but could be due to opening up too early as she tends to pull her head out and have it go with her front side as it opens before it should.
    But I will get some video and let the experts have a look once I can get some.

    But if anyone has names of some sound Right Handed hitters I can look up in the mean time. I would really appreciate it.

    Griggs, I’m not sure who I would recommend specifically but in the Model Hitters thread there are quite a few and there is some commentary after most.. hope that helps a little.

    I believe Lauren Chamberlain (not a 2017 player, but recent graduate) is a no-stride hitter. Lots of GIFs and discussions of her swings on this site. Probably the most-referenced collegiate hitter on DFP (or at least top 2, w/ Crystal Bustos).

    She was in college. Think she hits with a stride now. I actually hit her up on twitter to ask why the switch but she didn't respond
