Re: Injured ankle trying to use my legs in my swing.

Posted by: Jack Mankin (MrBatspeed@aol.com) on Mon Feb 11 12:20:34 2002

>>> I hurt my ankle real bad practicing my swing using my legs as the driving force in my swing. Now I am on crutches with a badly injured ankle that I will not be able to bear weight on for 6 weeks. I'm worried when I'm healed I'll be afraid to try that method again. I am a 23 female playing on a womens and co-ed tournament team. I am a great defensive player and am (was)fast but have always lacked power. Does anyone have any suggestions to help protect my weak leg when I start practicing again in about 3 months? <<<

Hi Cindy

I am sure coaches on the site (and myself) would like to offer you sound advise, but it would be helpful to have more information regarding what you were attempting to do when the ankle was injured. – I cannot think of any recognized “method” that would cause your problem. How were you using your legs and which ankle was injured?
