Note: Machine was throwing most everything at the letters. And, he's not a letters kind of guy. Likes to "fall" into a load for pitches waist to knees.
Son home from college for the weekend. Needed to straighten him out after several weeks of "stand tall" "hands to the ball" from his college coach. Coach seems like a nice guy. A nice uninformed guy.
If you're looking SteveE, does Brandon demonstrate the hooking mechanism we've talked about on the phone?
Also, the type of hit below shows up all too often. He doesn't roll over but he gets on top of the ball. Slightly out front. Looks to me like if he hit the ball a frame or two sooner in the swing, it would be well struck. So.....wait?
Is this a swing plane problem? A timing issue? A mechanical flaw?
His "forward by turning" move is more noticeable in the first clip. Is this a possible reason for being out front. Not as much time used in the load changes the timing and the direction of the swing.
BTW...see that knob going back toward the catcher......I asked him to work the bottom hand under the top so buster can feel at home. Hehe
