Yeah ways to make batting practice competitive could be a whole separate thread. One of my favorite BP drills is to have the kids call out whether it was for 4 seam or 2 seam after they hit it. Once that becomes easy they can challenge themselves by saying it before they make contactGood info that should be shared in other hitting threads to help others!
I basically use the same cue with Allie, Keep the barrel up as Long as Possible. Something else that could help with early leveling etc. that I use with Allie is hold the Foward "K" into launch.Minimal whining..I will take it.
She acted fine as well
Edit: I did mention the leveling although I coined it as "keeping the barrel up before launch"..I couldn't help myself
