    Your son's swing looks a lot like mine son's did at about 13 and 14. The single cue that has helped him the most is what SongTitle said - flexing the rear leg. It benefits everything up stream. In my son's case he is very tall so I think that lowering his center of gravity allows him to better get behind the ball, as opposed to swinging "down and to" the ball.

        I had an orthopedic surgeon tell me that when he was looking at my x-rays after he put my foot back together...it's always stuck with me.

            Flex the rear leg at what point? Stance? Load? Swing?
            Never played baseball, just a dad of someone that loves to play. So take any advice I post with a grain of salt.

              Or IOWs..."separate" the two halves rotationally (turning the top against the bottom), and not linearly (hands away from the front foot...or straight back before the stride).
              He was pulling his hands back behind him in the load, so the coach told him to keep it at the back shoulder or load back towards the umpire. Basically took away his version of scap load away, for better or worse.

                The scap doesn't 'load' in MLB swings, it snaps at the moment the coil goes from in to out. IOW, it's a result.

                  ''The action of the scap, as well as the action of the hip and lower back....is to PULL BACK so as to LOAD THE LEG.....not the scap. THAT is what all high level hitters do.''
