> I have heard coaches talk about hitting with the belly button, my father included. The issue I have with that is when hitting the outside pitch, your belly button never fully faces the pitcher as it would on an inside pitch. I feel every swing is a little different depending on location and speed. It's hard to say you should look a certain way when every swing is a little different.
with an outside pitch a right handed batter would rotate his hips a little less and target the belly button toward the direction he is attempting to hit, which would be right side.
