To translate, your bat drops back like a golf swing as soon as you start your swing causing your bat to be angled back at contact shooting the ball to left field. To see if this is your problem, place your left foot against a wall and try to swing. If your bat hits the wall then you are dragging your bat. To correct this, set up a tee and try to hit the ball off the tee while your still against the wall or net. The correct swing will feel like you're chopping wood or letting the bat fall straight down from your shoulder's into the contact zone.

When you say fence drill (enforcer drill) are you talking about the drill that Mike Epstein endorses?
