> I AM A 12 YEAR OLD KID ON AN ALLSTAR TEAM I CAN MAKE CONTACT VERY WELL BUT ALL I GET IS LITTLE BLOOPERS I DONT KNOW WHAT IM DOING WRONG. ALL MY COACHES ARE TELLING ME ALL DIFFERENT THINGS LIKE TO LEAN ON MY FRONT FOOT AND AND OTHER PEOPLE ARE TELLING ME TO PUT WHEIGHT ON MY BACK FOOT. I DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO. PLEASE HELP ME!!!!!!

First of all, you might try turning the caps lock key off, it makes it hard to read.
Now for the hitting, the reason you aren't hitting the ball hard is probably because you have different people telling you different things. When you go up to the plate I'm sure you're probably trying to accomplish all the little hints they told you, but the problem is, you're thinking. While hitting, you cannot think, it has to be an automatic response, a reaction. You need to solidify a mechanically sound swing by putting it in muscle memory by lots of reps swinging. You cannot keep changing your swing without giving it at least a few at bats as a trial run. Like the late, great Ted Williams used to say, get a good pitch to hit.
