Re: staying back
> I have a major problem of swinging too early. I am hitting everything off the end of the bat and hitting it to third base. A lot of weak ground balls mostly. What can I do to make myslef stay back more?
Move up in the box. Make sure you are striding toward the pitcher as opposed to stepping in the bucket. You might also experiment with lifting the lead food up in the air as a timing mechanism. Watch Alex Rodriguez on ESPN (he uses the leg lift).
