i took my 9 yr old in for batting lesson and this is waht they basicall taught them.
> 1. stride on toe or ball of foot
> 2.put foot down while pivoting rear foot keepin bat in same position
> 3 take handle to the ball
> 4 karate chop with right hand. i know its basic but is this guy on the right track?
I don't agree with the part about the back foot pivoting while the hands stay in the same position. How could this be true when the hands and hips must be on the same rotational path with each other. Maybe I am misinterpreting this, but I am getting the impression that he is telling your son to stride, rotate, and then begin the actual swing. If this is the case it does not seem accurate to me. The above description is a little vague to understand exactly what the instructor is trying to say, and exactly how the timing of all of this should be.
