I have a couple of 12 year olds on our team who are fine hitters, yet both have the same bad habit of dipping their back shoulder to reach low or outside pitches. Any suggestions of drills to break this habit?

You want to be in a athletic position from start to finish, so you want to maintain some flex in the knees, but the spine angle is upper body bend only.
