    ''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.''

    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.

    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).

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.
    Flex the rear leg at what point? Stance? Load? Swing?

    Just be glad it wasn't a heart surgeon ; )

    Instead of starting with his front foot open, he might get a better load if he started with both feet parallel. This could help with his hip load and sequencing....might be worth testing...

    Your son stretch is the yellow line...I like it to be the red line...

    ''separate" the two halves rotationally (turning the top against the bottom''

    That would be my wish, but that's not it's done with his program. It's taken much of my energy to just get him to not throw in the pen. He weightlifts with me but hes in the cages after school everyday. BP, throwing BP, grounders, etc.

    Sooo..to recap and keep it simple, coil over rear hip with stride, better turning the barrel , fire the back hip, mix in lighter bat work (hes only doing heavy wood bat which I just found out about, but honestly I would have thought it would force him to use his bottom half more, vs less).

    Have a look at McCutchen. Uses the same open stance style as your son.

    Your son is out of sequence. Her starts off pre-coiled. He sways into his rear leg but, never coils around his rear hip. Looks like the front leg/side is 'in charge.'.
