    I am not sure if it's good or bad, just an observation. Seems to me that would put you in a tough position on a high fastball.
    Because thats what I'm trying to do. I want to start with my rear elbow down and as I load it can come up. What I don't want is to start with it high, and have it go higher as I load.

    I get to the high fastball perfectly fine.

      I don't even know you and I'm sitting here a little choked up.

      Great job.

        In the role model, the "hands have stayed back" and the back is still turned more at contact - "early" batspeed:
        Tom..please. I, and probably most people on this forum have ZERO clue as to what the heck you are talking about. To be quite honest I don't know if you think my swing is good or sucks. I don't really care.

        All I know is that I've been pretty darn successful this spring after working with Steve E. Maybe you should take a serious look at what he teaches. My on base% is through the roof because of the new way I load and am able to stay back and see the ball longer. My power has been out of this world. I would venture to say I've hit 30-50 HR's during the Batting Practices we've had over the past 2 weeks. My game results have been great as well, noted by the big homerun I hit today.

        With all due respect, I think you confuse more folks around here than you help. You need to be more clear with your posts and not ramble so much and post some clips of hitters that you work with doing what you teach or believe.

        Respectfully,

          Great job.
          It was a great feeling, and I had one of the best BP's I've had in quite some time. Guys were deffinetly taking notice as to what I was doing.

          They asked me what I was doing...I said, "guys I'm just dynamically loading, tilting forward and turning into the dam ball". They just looked at me with this stunned look on their face like "What the heck did you just say?"

          Priceless.

            That is funny.

            You think you can supplement your pay by becoming their hitting advisor?

Had an amazing BP. Probably hit 10 jacks out of 25 swings and probably 10 other pee rods around the yard. I felt connected and absolutely "knew" when I had left my hands behind and dissconected.

                On to the game.

                Hiddengem,

                    Congrats HG, great to hear of your improvements - couldn't happen to a nicer guy. Looks like your perseverance is paying off. Best of luck to you.

                      Its a game of adjustments, thanks.

                        Crawford to Clarice before she made her first call on HL: "Believe me, you don't want Hannibal Lecter in your head."

                        Thanks for the report, HG.

                          Post clips!
                          DM, great to hear that this spring is turning out to be success for you. Hopefully by the time the Padres make their way to Houston, you'll be on the roster. Instead of the Crawford boxes, take it to Crawford Street! Good looking boy you got their as well. I know he'll have a great hitting instructor.

                            question for the Gem

                            Gem: Congrats on good start (and getting to have the little Padre along)... I've got a BP question for you: What do you feel is the most beneficial type of BP??? Do you guys change it up much or do you stick with one pattern? If you could design BP (because that is what I do for my HS team) how would you do it...
                            Thanks and best!

                              I'll bet young sons do, too.

                              Congratulations, David. That is wonderful.

                              Best regards,

                              Scott

                                Cool Fungo, missed that. Still VIVIDLY remember - but for obvious reasons won't reproduce - the walk Clarice takes down to HL's cell for her first meeting, what is said to her by the prisoner as she walks, and how HL makes her repeat it. Not for the fainthearted. Not a great "date movie" either, I wouldn't think.

                                Best,

                                Scott
