correction needed: pushing of the hands
After lengthy off season work establishing the rotational hitting techniques with my 13 yr old, he started the year leading his team in most all positive hitting categories...now its July and everything is falling off. Still photos have shown me that his hands are much further way from his body & bottom hand elbow is almost straight at contact(on a middle of the plate fast ball), resulting in weak hit grounders and shallow pop ups. A local "old timer" minor league player simply put it;"he is pushing his bat with his top hand and not yanking the bat to the ball with his bottom hand". My son is becoming frustrated and ending the season successfully will prove to him that all that hard work was worth it last year, hopefully supplying the drive for off season work this year. Any suggestions? Your assistance is much appreciated.
