Re: Dropping hands

>>> My son is is 10 years old and has a horrible habit of dropping his hands prior to attempting contact. Is there any drill I can do with him to get him out of this habit? Thank you for any advice. <<<

Hi John

The best hitters initiate their swings with the hands at shoulder level and make contact with the hands below the belt on pitches at the knees. From the information you provided, I cannot say for sure if your son has a problem or the lowering of his hands is just the necessary trajectory of sound swing mechanics.
