I mentioned in another thread that my 9yo dd wants to learn to slap hit and we've been working on it for a few weeks now. I have had her working on just regular hitting from the left side at our last couple of work outs with the thought being that it will help with her comfort level and coordination slapping. She doesn't have a problem making contact but her swing is all arms and terrible, as would be expected at this point. Is it a waste of time to use this approach? Right now a lot of her "slap hits" are more like drag bunts and I feel like she will get more coordination by learning to swing properly first. Thoughts?
