Re: Re: Re: Late Swing

Hi Tom,

Send him out here to CA for a couple weeks to play with his cousin. They'll figure it out. If that's not possible I recommend extra soft toss drills and making sure he's not "loading up" or hitching twice, a common problem even with Varsity High School players.

My son is having a difficult time catching-up with pitches. He is swinging late at everything.
