Re: foot movement and stride
as the pitch is being thrown my daughter moves her back foot back and then steps into the pitch with her front foot. this messes up her timing and her chances of catching up to the pitch to hit it out in front of the plate. she says she knows she does it but she can't help it. does anyone know of any drills i can work on with her to help break her of this habit? please help. thank you
Anyway, sometimes the easiest way to break a habit is to keept doing it. Just do that back foot step earlier - like during the pitcher's windup instead of after release. It keeps its timing value but doesn't rush the rest of the swing.
Just a thought...
