    Needs a lot of work.

    I see squishing the bug and someone who's not swinging very hard.

    I also work with the pitchers who are dealing with injury problems.

      It's not terrible, but would agree there is some work needed. I would start with maintaining the box (upper body rotation) and establishing a workable swing plain. IMHO

          Just to be clear - Chris is saying squishing the bug is a bad thing. Most would agree. If you go to Clips, Pics and Sites and read you'll see few good hitter squish the bug. Their weight moves forward and many go up on their back toe with many dragging the toe forward a bit.

              He's doing what most young hitters that I see, do. He's starting the swing with his arms instead of his legs/hips.

              He moves the handle of the bat at the ball, before he turns his hips.

              To create optimum batspeed and get good power, you MUST use the lower body to start the swing.

              Look closely at the swings in this video and note how the front hip moves before the hands move the handle at the ball;

              And, look at all these guys get the hips going before the hands go at the ball.

                Well, hitting off of a tee and hitting live pitching are going to create slightly different timing in the hip/hand movements - and if you don't believe this then you haven't hit much live pitching lately. Basically, he's just got a "loopy" swing. Instead of the hands going "forward, directly to the ball," they go down like they would in a golf swing.

                      It's a little better, but you need to separate the bottom from the top more. Actually try moving your hands back a little bit, as you stride and turn the hips. Get the feel of the hands being pulled by the hips and shoulders. You need to create a stretch in the muscle in your front side between the hip and the ribs. The hips must turn first. It's hips and then hands. Don't just turn your back foot. Use your back leg to move your hip and torso. You should feel the muscles in the upper leg and butt, moving the hip.

                      Look at these guys, and how the hands load up and back as they shift and turn the lower body.

                        swing with you hips and the upper body will follow.

                        and swing like you mean it

                          You aren't opening that bottom wrist on the ball fast enough, you need to quicken up.

                              I can identify with the commentary.

                              Posture could be better and he's got bat drag. See 20-24. http://imageevent.com/siggy/hitting/...0&m=20&w=0&p=0
