    Whew. For a minute there based on your post title I thought we were going to have another discussion about 10u kids hitting 300 bombs. You know they are out there, right?

    If you can hit one legged, go ahead. I think the majority of girls will benefit from the weight shift / two legged swing.

    I am NOT a hitting expert and avoid the technical hitting forum and the drama that is there, but genetics tells me that most men have more upper body strength than most women, so emulating a baseball swing is not always a great idea.

    Emulating a baseball swing, for the most part, is an excellent idea.

    I think we've proven time and time again, that the ideal mechanical swing is the same between softball and baseball. Women aren't trying to put a baseball over a 325-425 foot fence with a 30+ ounce bat with a BPF rating of .50 at its best. They're trying to put the ball in play with the highest likelihood of success. Keeping the barrel in the approaching path of the ball as long as possible, with as much power possible = highest likelihood of success.
