Additional Note: this approach is not designed to create an opposite field hitter but to improve results gap to gap. My theory is rather like the pinball analogy Mike Epstein uses. If you focus on hitting the other way, you will often be timed to hit the ball square just before and not after the hands start their rollover.
> I believe erring in timing--by waiting too long (and hitting opposite field) has better results than always erring on the side of being too early.
>>Tim,I think that is a good position to put them in,Jack has always said you should hit the ball further back with rotation.I have some hitters who are fb pull hitters but in a game they are out front on the off speed and under the belly high fb.I think I will try your drills and see if it will keep them back.
