She worked her ass off... 100 % effort all the time. I wasn’t a good instructor because I really didn’t have time to get to get more involved to help her out. So what you see is a hybrid of me trying to help her and misdirection by hitting coaches. BTW I made mistakes along the way as well. Regardless of her swing imperfections, she played top ball here in Canada, named MVP at the provincials, MVP at the nationals in a game against one the best teams in Canada, hit over .400 at the Nationals and her team finished 4th in the nation. There was no quit in the kid, she tried so hard... and that’s why it bothers me so much to have some ass insult her on a forum on the internet. Do we encourage this kind of thing on DSP? My DD is done with the game, I posted many videos on here asking for help in the past... not for some loser to be using it against me in an argument, disrespecting and insulting her. Seriously I’m right here, you want to be a tough guy over the internet, come at me.. leave my DD out of it.

Sorry Shawn, i am not 100% sure what you mean by rotation.. can you please elaborate.
I mean trying to rotate or creating rotation. Turning this body part or that body part.

It would have been nice to see her swing around 60% effort, to see what her swing looked like at different effort levels.

By the time we as instructors learn enough to help our own kids out. It often can be too late. It takes time to learn this stuff.

Not here.
Yep he went there.. we may insult each other.. or try to rattle each others chains on occasion.. but insulting our kids is well below the belt
Show me where I INSULTED YOUR KID. I re-posted a gif(that I created) from a swing that you posted for help. I gave you help. Now Shawn tried to help you. You are the one trying to insult me.
Nobody cares anymore.. lol
That wasn't meant as an insult....then what was it.
Put me on ignore.
Oh, and by the way...

Talk about internet tough guy...don't make me laugh...
You would be wise to leave me alone....like I've asked you before....tough guy.
Again pit me on ignore..OKAY.

I'm not the only who saw it that way moron.. your intent was obvious.

The discussion between Shawn and I has nothing to do with me asking for help or him offering help.

I have no problem ignoring your BS, just stop posting gifs of my kid, it's distasteful in the context you posted it, insulting. Insulting a full grown man is one thing.. taking a swipe at a kid is another. That's why it's been removed from the thread. Want to have a go at somebody, insult me.. leave her out of it.

I was just taking a negative and turning it into a positive.
Nah, I brought you into it because I mentioned several times about some of the issues my DD was having with posture when she played... then were good examples. Similar to the issue you are having.

It had nothing to do with the issue I was having with RDBASS.. Not sure why you felt the need or how you were going to make that a positive, LOL.
