> My son will turn seven in August and was selected to the pitching machine all stars about three weeks ago. His previous two years have been in t-ball. He makes good, hard contact with the ball but I've been noticing that a majority(about 60-65%) of his balls are chopping ground balls to short or third. Th remaining are nicely hit line drives up the middle or right over the infield. I know its difficult to state the problem without actually seeing him, but does anyone have any advice on what he could be doing wrong and if any drills could help that could make him more consistent?
He needs to remember to fully extend his hands and put backspin on the ball.Steve Garvey had a great tape demonstrating his Power V.
