  • Sucking IT up.

    took oafors advice and started sucking it up..looked at a certain guys{STEVE} one hand swing over and over and over again with my kid.Made the kid do the samething over and over and over and over...and guess what over the fence she went today.320 plus..almost got two one foul by 10 ft.. Sucking it up never felt so GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD.

    320 for a female is a VERY long ways. In all my days of watching FP, I've seen maybe 2-3 hitters put one 300. Congrats!

    Regards,

    Scott

      Sarge, you know woggy's kid is a --HE-----I think he meant "she went over the fence" as a reference to the ball....
      .....or, maybe you knew that and I messed up..:o

        I think you may be correct. Way to go Dog. Great to hear about a big fly and all the work that goes into getting there.

        By the way Mr. Clifton, how's Mrs. Clifton doing with the tweaking of Ms. Clifton's hitting mechanics?

          Awesome! Hope it becomes such a regular thing you use all those home run balls for bp just have something to do with them.

              Remember that as soon as you put that top hand back on that bat the brain knows it. It will fight really hard to use the old patterns.

                Thanks, Loren, I'm an idiot.

                Congrats are obviously still in order.

                Truer words never spoken, Garrett.

                Best regards,

                  I echo Scott's truer words comment.

                  Same with posture, it seems... The body,,,, without some monitoring,,,,, tends to fall back to a more "comfortable" approach.

                  So Garrett, how does one teach connection in the swing and disconnect in the brain? LOL.

                    I'll echo this once again!

                    After working the last 2 1/2 months on our "new" swing, my son is still using his "old" swing during the games. REALLY FRUSTRATING!! I thought we made some progress after his first scrimmage game he went 2-2 with a single and triple, but after 4 games now....he's still without a hit.

                    The game stress totally takes away his confidence, and he can't seem to use his good swing.

                      you put the bat where they cannot do it wrong....

                      they do revert.....it is programed...your fighting an unhill battle that I have fought already.

                      You watching a movie that I have seen the ending of and the end doesn't change

                        The goal is the same in the hitter's brain. Hit the ball. Change the goal to "have a good swing".

                          I have said that........maybe I need to emphasize it more.

                          We'll see how todays game turns out.

                          Thanks!

                            Rob...I have watched the muscles of the top hand forearm tighten up as the pitcher breaks over. You can see the top hand take over from behind the screen

                              Make sure you praise a good swing regardless of the result.
