  1. Good Stuff – enjoy your videos. I coach an 11U team in Virginia. We
    grabbed the Nations Select #1 ranking in the State to complete our fall
    season. Our team logo is to the left. Question for ya – working hard with
    my son on T work/soft toss/front toss on learning how to let the outside
    pitch get deeper into the zone; driving the ball to the opposite field.
    How deep do you typically instruct kids to let the ball travel before
    pulling the trigger??

  2. Also you can place something that goes up to about hip height a couple
    inches in front of their front foot and have them swing so their hips don’t
    “slide” just a suggestion?

  3. I think this is a little misleading. When you talk about staying back or
    behind the baseball, it only works in this instance with a no stride
    approach. Most of the time when someone refers to staying back, they really
    mean starting back. In reality, if a player strides, of course his head is
    going to move. Look at any of the great hitters of today and yesterday, and
    you will see big time head movement forward. That is their weight shift.
    The key is to stop head movement at front heel plant, or once the front
    foot lands and the heel plants on the ground, for the player that takes a
    stride. Front heel plant is when the swing begins…not when you take your
    stride. Stride or no stride, once the front heel plants the head stops
    moving and the body rotates under the head or as some say, the body rotates
    around the head or a center axis…for all the “rotational” hitters out
    there. If you are “linear”, keep moving forward through the ball with

  4. Thanks for the vid this is really going 2 help me come spring time?

  5. Hey i have some questions. I am 13 and am having trouble letting the
    outside pitch, or any pitch for that matter, travel and get deeper in the
    hitting zone. I really have a problem with this on off speed stuff. Ive
    tried bringing my feet closer together, a huge leg kick, a toe tap and much
    more but i just cant find any answers from anyone that work for me . I have
    great bat speed but im 0 for 9 on the season. Any tips or drills.?
