I like her barrel pump actions but would probably work on a lower hand set and make it more of a hand action.. I think her arms end up disconnecting from the power source and makes it difficult to control the whip. IOW's tone it down some. Also try to keep the hands inside the body, similar to miggy through out the movements.

no one concerned about that arm bar which really shows itself on the low pitch?
That pitch was both low and out. Her tendency is to adjust hands away from her shoulder to get to those pitches, which extends her lead arm, and she still pulls the ball. I would rather she used more of an inside-outside path, and drive it oppo, but we haven't been able to get her to make that change.

NOPE!! Love Maddies swing and the results Ive seen Eric post. Hope my DD has that type of smooth power when she gets older.

Maybe I should try the earbuds trick with my wife!! "What's that honey? Sorry..couldn't hear ya." 😬
