> > Hi, My 12 year old daughter has been bombarded by several different coaches trying to "correct" her swing. She has always been a decent hitter despite her small size but has developed the habit of stepping towards third. The rest of her mechanics seem fine. Any suggestions on how she can adjust her stride and keep it forward and not back. Thanks

Find out the reason for stepping away from the pitch. Sometimes fear of bieng hit but most often its the inability to rotate into the pitch, especially inside pitches. They want to give themselves room to hit. I agree with Mike that no stride is an option but it doesn't suit all hitters.

Good luck
