I went to a clinic and they suggested that a common fault with kids (my kids are 11-12 year olds)is having a long swing. We were told that the kids should develop a compact swing and that a fence drill would accomplish this. They showed us how to teach this drill, but before I invest a lot of time in this drill I was hoping for some opinions as to how effective the drill is in overcoming the long swing. Also, any other hints as to how to develop a short swing? I don't believe everything I hear at these clinics, but this one was conducted by an ex-AAA minor leaguer, so I'm sure he's right in emphasizing a short swing.
Thanking you in advance, Coach Rob
