        oh BM with the massive brain and unparalleled experience, Ted also said the shoulders follow the hips.

        he did not spend nearly as much time on shoulders as hips and wrists.

        but not even Ted can compare to the BM in his true greatness.

              5. Remember, the plate is the pitcher's objective and he has to come to it. I use 'back of plate' expression to mean towards the catcher, away from plate to denote distance from plate towards outside of box. Now, use a slightly closed stance, and keep a little more weight on your front foot than back. That gives you balance and won't pull you away from curves. You are always in position to give maximum drive.

              8. Keep your back leg straight. Of course, if you put your weight more on the front leg, then the back leg will be straight.
              "Coaches should teach people to play better baseball, not teach baseball to make better players."
