At 8 years old many kids are still developing their basic motor
skills. So it may benefit him to first practice taking his hands
straight back (pre launch hitting position) in his hitting position.
In this way, he will incorporate some of the THT, but may not feel the
need to exagerate the technique. (See Paul Konerko side view).
