He was a LHH 2nd baseman in college, and he wanted his smaller players to swing down on the ball instead of into the path of the ball. I asked him if he would rather hit ground balls at the 1st & 2nd basemaen or would he rather hit a line drive to rt center or over the 1st basemans head for a double in the corner.

And to be truthful, the ones with the down path normally are better hitters.
