      Maybe he didn't say it...



      This picture of Al Kaline, which Lau Sr. said represents a bad swing, is pretty much the ideal for a ball down the middle.

            • That isn't Cobb. Cobb was left handed. Don't know who that #5 guy is. Anyone want to hazard a guess?

                  JF/NEOH,
                  Here's Nomar. Note that not only does he have an open stance, but he's also a no-strider. A vid of him from the minors-



                  Now here he is toward the end of his career in the majors. This wasn't a successful AB, but it's a better camera angle to see stance.



                  Here you see Trot Nixon's stance.




                  I don't mind 1/2 open to 1/4 closed. I think anything more than 1/4 closed can present issues with youth. I want both eyes straight ahead on the ball working out the depth perception 2 eyes combined are supposed to do. Secondly, I believe that being closed can stifle hip rotation in youth. My personal preference is slightly open - right off the instep or thereabouts. It allows the hips to uncoil more freely, and, provided the batter is close enough to the plate, allows for stronger hitting to all fields, IMHO. Please note that I'm not saying a closed stance can't get it done or that my belief is an absolute. I see many Dads/coaches poo-pooing kids' open stances simply because they didn't swing that way/weren't taught that way. Is that helpful?

                          uncoach, the youtube drill appears to show a guy trying to make contact with arms extended like your pics. This guy is trying to do his version of the "Big Zone". Your pics are clearly well after contact. Big difference.
