Re: Strikeouts

> 6 months ago I switched from a linear swing to a rotational one. The
results are very noticable and I started hitting with alot more power. The
swing is consistant and mechanically sound with THT CHP and BHT.
However, in games my timing is off and I am ahead of everything. My
strikeouts have increased and I often kill the ball foul. Homeruns and
doubles are turning into strikes! Has anyone else experienced/heard of
this problem? I think it may just be from the increase in batspeed, but Its
hard to train your eyes to react differently in live situations. any help is

What has happen is your swing has become more efficient it more
compact thus make your swing faster and more powerful. You will be a
head of the ball. One thing you have to do when you become efficient in
a rotational swing is to retrain your eyes you are going to be able to let
the ball travel deeper on you than it did in your old swing. How to fix it?
A lot of bp if you can get someone to throw bp to you, the more that you
can do the fast you will be able to get on time. You will have to have 10
to 15 thousand swings to ingrain it into the muscle memory.
