It's not whether the hitter is dropping their back shoulder to much. It's more so when the back shoulder is dropping.someone who is dropping their shoulder to much resulting in pop ups?
Good hitters drop the back shoulder.
Poor hitters drop the back shoulder.
What is the difference?
Good hitters' drop DRIVES their swing.
Poor hitters' drop then swing.
Good hitters' barrel speed is DURING THE DROP.
Poor hitters' barrel speed is AFTER THE DROP.
Good hitters drive DOWN to the ball....upon which their barrel turns up.
Poor hitters drop then drive UP THROUGH the ball.
Could you elaborate on the bold? upper back correctly? TYAs rdbass stated, if your kid is striding out with her back shoulder dropped already that is probably a/the problem. Make sure they are using their upper back correctly in their load to get into an attack position as they stride out (front shoulder slightly down and in).

Meant to get back to this but..got busy.
Watch how as Trout is moving out it looks like is trying to elbow somebody behind him with his rear elbow. It is
sometimes call a pullback. Also sometimes a young hitter will get their shoulders turned upside down on their negative move
(front shoulder above back shoulder) and this puts them in a bad position to start their move out. Trout here starts with his shoulder
down and in and maintains that through his negative move.
