> I am all for hard hit line drives. But keep in mind that a ball hit on the centerline with bat angling upward at 12 degrees is a line drive. The ball must be struck ¼ to 3/8 inch below centerline to attain home run loft. -- I have my batters try to hit the center.
> Scott, at - http://www.youthbaseballcoaching.com/swings.html there are 47 clips of some of the best hitters. See how many of those clips you can show us where the bat is angling downward at contact.

I agree...the approach is downward, however the bat planes out prior to contact...if your going to miss (which you are, more then you preach) you should miss on top a oppose to under…you will have for more success playing your misses if they are on the ground then in the air.
