I need help with my swing....

Posted by: Jake (CrimsonIV@aol.com) on Mon Apr 2 18:24:31 2001

Ok, before I explain, here is all of my attributes....

15 years old 5'10" 145 lbs.
Easton Reflex 32 in, 29 oz
Playing Freshman basbeall

Ok, here goes. I have always been able to make good contact with the ball, but if it's out of batting practice, I can never seem to hit the ball off the ground. I never hit linedrives, and I rarely have a pop fly. I am not a big person in terms of muscle, so I will have to rely a lot more on other things. I don't do all of the incorrect things that may have been taught to me...i.e. elbow up, roll hands at contact, etc.

Let me explain how I am swinging. My stance isn't in the upright, but it's not as low as mark mcgwire. when I swing, I take a short stride,pull my hands back to get in a position of power, and swing, keeping it as compact as possible, to explode off of the ball. Yet, I still cannot seem to hit well in games, just BP. I don't know if it's mental or what, but I know I have to work on something, but cannot find out what that is.
