    Sorry, best I can do.
    You can't look much better than that!

      I certainly appreciate the advice.

      A lot of kids I see playing at his age (including, at times, Steven) still want to try and pull an outside pitch. Right or wrong, I teach him to allow an outside pitch to get a little deeper and hit it hard the other way. All things being equal however, he knows the best place to make contact is near the instep of his right foot.

          Some kids just have a gift. The ones who do AND work hard are the ones we hear about. Go on, tell me he's fast and has a cannon too.

            I appreciate all of the comments and critique. The more input I can get from you guys, the better. I have learned a ton from reading the analysis' you guys have given since I became a member. A little over my head at times, but informative nonetheless!

            J-MAC...just "looks LIKE?"

              Not to mention he is good looking like his old man!

              Seriously, the kid just loves baseball. His arm is very strong and accurate from the outfield. He can run pretty good, but we are working on increasing his (and the entire team's) speed.

              Just trying to teach him how to understand/play this game correctly and have fun. AND, waiting for him to hit 6' and about 210...

                  I would start visiting colleges and get a sports marketing agent.

                    Yep, good advice.

                    But the plate is 17" wide in both environments, and the adult's arms are 6" longer, and so is his bat. I like this approach for a kid - maintaining connection and staying in the core mechanics.

                    Since the difference is one of timing - not different swing mechanics - it is a fairly easy fix as the kid gets older.

                    My $.02, anyway.

                    Regards,

                      Looking for a still of this swing

                      The swing looks very good...but could somebody post a still of this boy's swing the frame or two after contact? I think I have stumbled onto something significant and I want to see what you all think.

                        If you grab the little botton on the bottom you can drag the clip and advance frame by frame. Does this help?

                          looking for something I can paste

                          Jake (or anybody)

                          I am actually looking for a still I can copy and paste in a thread. It needs to be a frame or two after contact. I think it will lead to a great discussion

                          Thanks,

                          Ken

                                I hope my son looks that good swinging by the time he reaches that age minus the broken ankle
