    A poster(mudvnine) that I respect on another site posted this:
    That's why I wrote "Easiest?" earlier...trying to imply that there is no one "easiest" way to go about it with different hitters. What you have to do with one, may turn out to not work, or even turn out to be detrimental to another...simply because each hitter has a different proprioception of how they want to move their body in order to accomplish a certain task, so the "cookie cutter" approach to teaching hitting that is so prevalent at most places can be problematic in many cases.
    I wasn't positive of the meaning.
    pro·pri·o·cep·tion
    (prō'prē-ō-sep'shŭn),
    A sense or perception, usually at a subconscious level, of the movements and position of the body and especially its limbs, independent of vision; this sense is gained primarily from input from sensory nerve terminals in muscles and tendons (muscle spindles) and the fibrous capsule of joints combined with input from the vestibular apparatus.

    LOL

    ...Anyway, who cares if he posts his daughters swing or not? Just cause a guy says his daughters swing is dead on doesn't mean he needs it validated on this site. He was curious about the numbers he posted...

    And really, are we going to get into grammar wars on an internet forum.. LOL

    Thank You exactly but look what a few fathers did to this thread and if they act like this on a forum I can only Imagine what they are in real life or at a game

    I can't say I really agree with your aggressive behavior either, and you were the one who challenged others to come looking for you at a tournament (real Life). That seems a little extreme to me. Just saying if a normal calm person makes a posts saying their daughters swing is "dead on" they shouldn't feel pressured to post a video. Then again there are others on here who would like to see the video for a valid reasons. Most people on here are decent people, you just need to learn to weed through the BS.

I can never ever say anything negative about someones daughter or not believe it if a dad posts it and if I don't believe it I wouldn't call someone out on it or want to see the swing. And I'm not that old and don't look like that dude in the red tank top.But I'm sure someone on this forum might be in Rosemont,Ill and will see me and know me.But like I said a bunch of pain in the ass dads who just have to be a ass on a forum behind a key board
    Ok you know how to swear, so do you use that kind of language in front of your dd? I'm most diffently not jealous of your dds swing and never would be. My dd has and had a swing at that age that in your terms was pretty close to dead on but could use improvement and still trying to improve. I never said anything negative about your dd and wouldn't. But on that note I will say something about her father. I feel by just reading your post, that you are a little punk and are over compensating for your failures when you were a teenager and living those failures through your dd. By the way like I said earlier in my post, sitting behind a keyboard you can talk tough all you want. I hope your dd goes on to have a great softball career and great life. You on the other hand need to grow up.

    Just so you know dd lead her hs team .636 batting avg, home runs, rbis, doubles,walks and on base %. Then I watched her strike out 4 times in row this weekend on tb team before getting her first hit of the weekend. So all the great #s she had in hs this year meant nothing this weekend. I tell you this because always looking for improvement.

    LOL well this thread got sideways quick. Good times lol.

    For comparison my 13 year old DD just did the camp. Her bat speed was 58 mph and a blast factor of 70.

    Exist speeds and launch angles are nice and great but,.......What's more important to me is that your swing is instantaneous between the time a hitter decides to swing and the actual launch of the swing. No other movements in-between, no slop, no readjustments....ect.

    Are you suggesting that the swing resemble the 'command drill'?



    Do you (or anyone else) instruct hitters to swing from a static orientation like this in games? If so, then what is the advantage? If not, then what is the disadvantage?

    Which swing are you referring to. Didn't TM use to call this the 'Race'.

    The Command drill as I understand it is get in a loaded position and go. Helps to identify if there is any 'slop' in a hiters swing.
