    looks good,

    you got the strength to tilt the bat some, and it seems that I read in one of your other threads that someone told you that you were wrapping your bat. If you are its not that much. Make sure you keep the weight on the inside of you back foot, it may be me but it looks as if you are almost going flat footed on your rear foot, which is a small power leak and can help you with a faster swing(coil more). Look at that first.

    you may want to learn as the season goes on to shorten you swing a tad to protect the plate. All that is, is learning not to take the hands back so far and almost learn a no stride weight shift for those times you are protecting the plate. That is another hitting style, but if you find you are in over your head with a good fastball pitcher who has his other stuff going. It never hurts to learn to protect the plate in this situation.

    But it looks to me you have a well accomplished swing and the last thing I want to do is tinker with it over the Internet. Ask your coach to look and see before you start tinkering.



    good job,

      The only thing that I could see as a possible problem is how much you "reverse rotate" in your load. It seems like your back is about 3/4 turned towards the pitcher before unloading. I'd bet that if you filmed from the front, you could be able to see a large part of your back and rear elbow sticking out more than it should. A little is fine, as just about everyone does it, but you're getting close to too much of it.

      Everything else looks fine.

        Yeah I noticed this... Both of you have commented on this... as well has my coach. This is one of the things that my coaches want me to work on. I'm working on this everyday during practice and on my own.

        Thanks for the comments drill and Cosmo.

          Looks nice. You look like you can drive the ball nicely with that swing. Curious why you dont have a vid against live pitching at the cage or something? You may have addressed it before I may have missed it.
          When you bat against live pitching is that how you hold your bat at that angle? I like it personally.
          Shut your mouth when you're talking to me!

            I don't take it to practice... I'll try to get someone to film my game swings. Next weekend I may be able too, but its hard to get film of live swings.

                    Conner, what is that stick you're swinging to hit the whiffle ball? Is it a whiffle bat?

                    Do you have a real bat?

                        Connor,
                        Great improvement from the first few we saw.
                        I would curious to see you hit with the tee about 6" closer, just in front of the front foot and about 12" lower.

                              The tee is set a bit far out front, which causes you to lunge and disconnect a bit.

                              The tee should be at your front heel.

                              However, you generally look good.
