Shawn, I applaud your efforts...... Next time you video your swing try your different swing thoughts with some live pitching or front toss with some pace and please no machine. Upon completion report the results or any adjustments made with your swing thoughts..

I would advice the rest who are advising to do the same thing. Not saying the thoughts don't work but at least one can report back results and maybe adjustments if any made to accommodate the swing thought..

I think today's swings are more natural, less thinking. I just tried to create the axis at the back hip and a deep rotational point of the hands.

It's been a long time since someone threw BP to me. I don't see that happening for sometime.

Hey mods, I think it’s time for a new sticky. Can you please create a thread where moms and dads can post their swings? That would be fun and create lots positive and productive conversation, LOL

Also Shawn, I've lost like 3 pounds since I started taking cuts in the backyard(10 days ago?) Mostly skin off my hands I think though. Once again, very cool of you to put yourself out there.

This is great. I was doing something similar with my swaying and Blast Connect. Trying to change things to improve the numbers. I was also trying to apply what people were debating in the TTB thread but could not keep up with the thread.

Honestly I TTB naturally. I don’t have to think about it. I did a long time ago and had a problem with sending the barrel backwards by losing the hinge angle. I had the hardest time of breaking the habit. What fixed it was swinging down. I worked on swinging down by lowering or slotting the back elbow without letting the top hand uncock at the start or first move.

What do you mean by swinging down. Down to the ball or down behind you, or something else?

I started to unhinge the top hand before the back elbow started to lower. So I started to think about swinging down, lowering the back elbow first, not the hands specifically.

I think you shouldn’t TTB without swinging down at the same time.
