> I would suggest that what is causing your 8 yr old's bat lag is not due his rotating his upper body too much or to soon. His problem is that the angular acceleration of his bat is not staying in sync with the rotation of his shoulders. Therefore, his upper body fully rotates but his bat is left lagging far from contact.

I see what you are saying. He does hit often and usually to centerfield but not with the power of someone his size. Any suggestions on drills to rectify the issue, especailly to keep his top hand elbow from getting underneat his other arm?
