Re: Choking up on the bat

I agree with you Scott.

It looks to me that if you have a need to choke up, then your bat is too heavy from the start. You shouldn't be changing your mechanics or where you are holding the bat.

However, with 2 strikes, I tell the players to not be thinking if it's a ball or strike but if they can hit it, then swing for it. Perhaps this should be the approach with a 0-0 count too. I personally never tell a player to choke up for the reason you cited plus now they don't have to coverage that they are used to.
