  • Please give your thoughts on my son's swing

    He is 8. A natural RH, but has been working from both sides for a few weeks. Please let me know what he is doing good or bad! Thanks!

    Cole,
    Couple thoughts... First slow his repetition down! He needs to reset and have a few seconds between balls. He learns nothing by high frequency.
    Second, take the clips and freeze each frame and then compare them to a good swing - there are several in Clips, Pics and Sites. You will be able to answer many of your own questions.

    For eight - he's doing well. I'll send a couple of thoughts tomorrow.

      Thanks Jake! We don't normaly go at that pace, but we had to get it done quick because he had a football game that day!

        Have him initiate his lead elbow at the pitcher's head. This will keep him from dropping his hands early. It is a great cue.

          Looks pretty good. If he likes to practice then the switch hitting might be a possibility. Maybe do a fair amount of one handed drills to improve the eye-hand.

            After toe touch...

            He drops his arms and hands, without dropping/tilting his back shoulder.

            The back elbow and back shoulder should drop roughly as a unit.
