Re: Hitting the outside pitch

I think now may be a good time to bring the discussion back to what the board was designed to accomplish - "A frank and open-minded discussion of the baseball/softball swing." It seems clear to me that discussing personalities can make little advancement to our understanding of the swing.

jack,

i can't see how anybody could consider hitting the outside of the ball - "taboo", BUT for those that do:

two questions,

aren't all hitters striving to hit the ball to ALL fields?

how can a hitter (RH) hit a ball to left if he DOESN'T hit the
outside of the ball???
