The squash the bug platform simply teaches you to redistribute your weight in a more consistent manner. What happens when these guys face a guy with a nasty split finger or great changeup without never having worked on staying back? Could you imagine? So, if you teach these kids early just to " stay back" they would actually have a chance to lay off of that nasty sharp 59 foot slider. As soon as I taught myself to stay back and drive through the ball, instead of lunge my career stats went up. But I have pictures of Albert with his back foot down as well. Check out the photos on Facebook.com/HighoutPutSports and check out my Fav hitters. Also, Dave, it depends on what types of pitches these guys are getting too. Thanks and Hank Aaron was a front front hitter. possibly the best, Frank Thomas was also.
