My point is if she hits almost as well from the LH side at this point there is no reason to keep hitting RH as there IS an advantage to being a LH hitter all things being (almost) equal. That is why it is a good idea for this young hitter to try and see if she can hit LH. If she shows any sort of competence at a point in the near future she should just switch to the LH side. I wouldn't say the same thing if she was a natural LH hitter.It has been advantageous in my daughter's softball development. Again, I don't have a time machine to re-do the last several years to see what would happen if she would only hit from the right side; I'm ok with not having definitive causation evidence to present you.
Based on her in-game performance and her HitTrax numbers, I'm supportive of her wanting to be a switch hitter.
Ok fair enough I suppose that could be a possibility but at some point pick the LH side if the kid can hit from that side...I would contend that the process of learning how to hit from both sides could be an asset for some athletes; removing the right side component, could be detrimental. Just a theory, but learning is a complicated task.
Not everyone learns the same.
