Re: back-elbow

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

> 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????

> joe a.....first i would like to congratulate you on a well thought-out post....having said that i would like to point out that the purpose of this site is to promote BATSPEED.....that's why jabk is known as Mr. Batspeed.....attaining the greatest batspeed possible means learning the techniques that the pros use (that's how THEY got to be pros).....ever so respectfully, grc.....
