Does the back elbow always come down to the side even on outside pitches?

Anyone and everyone,

I think its funny that these people use pros as a model for learning to teach a swing. I was at a batting practice at a AAA game and saw a batter fooling around in the batting cage, hitting line drives with one hand. According to other players the pitcher was throwing over 70 mphs.

Most kids cannot hit line drives off of 70 mph pitching. I guess that because a pro can hit line drives this way, some people would teach a kid to hit with one hand. Sounds right to me.

Pros are not the model for teaching young people. Even they would not teach someone to do what they do. When will people learn this????
