> 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 appreciated
Bat speed is the key to hitting, now that you have generated more your timing is off. The best way to get your timing down is to let the ball get deep in the zone. Practice evrything up the middle to opposite field. If you let the ball get deep and work opposite field this will allow your hips to work perfectly and also allow them to become quicker and the timing will come.
