swing mechanics & illness

Posted by: ernest roy (prd530@msn.com) on Sat Jul 25 16:04:15 2009

I wonder if anyone has encountered this before. My son was a high school freshman last season. Made varsity, hit .455 & drove in 26 runs in a 16 game season. This year started out well enough, but about 4 games in he cane fown with what we think was some form of influenza. Never seen him as sick as he was. Long story short, he recovered in about 7 to 10 days, but could not hit the braodside of the barn for the rest of the year. Finished the season hitting about .170 (might be generous). He had a good tryout for Legion ball & made the team mainly on last year's reputation. He has slowly been climbing back up but has yet to equal what he was a year ago. Has anyone ever dealt with this? He is discouraged. Feels fine, swing looks good, just can't hit the ball out of the infield anymore in games although he is killing it in BP.

This song is traditionally sung during the 7th inning stretch?
   All My Roudy Friends
   Take Me Out to the Ballgame
   I Wish I was in Dixie
   Hail to the Chief
