    Default 12U DD hitting with the new Mizuno F19 PowerCarbon

    Good evening, everyone! I'm still new to this forum, so please forgive and instruct if I'm going about this the wrong way.

    DD received her new bat this weekend. (Thank you Core!!) Preliminary review - WOW!

    We were looking for swing feedback to start a new season of learning. (Evals on Sunday already!!)

    I'm interested in what others have to say about hand positioning and barrel path.

    Hips 'pushing' not 'pulling' the hands.

    So if this young lady came to you for a lesson what would be the first thing you would have her do? And don't say "buy a volleyball." Let's try to be a little more constructive than "push".

    Think she is a good candidate for neck slot / bat throwing. Can't push a bat very far!

    I feel like I have to caveat all my comments here with: "I'm new to this and mostly going on what our particular professional hitting coach teaches, though I read a ton and we've had dozens of lessons to many different girls." I'll probably cut and past that for all my comments.

    She isn't swinging very hard.

    Our hitting coach would have the hands back further and behind the head more at the stance.

    RH ... While I think RDB's demo could be better, he's on the correct track. She bleeds the corner and pushes. She's a pusher.
