What?

BHL,

That is absolutely ridiculous. The reason Mankin and other coaches stress trying to hit the ball to the ceter of the field is because this maintains proper bat path and other aspects of the swing. 99% of the time if a player is looking to pull the ball and it is an outside pitch, he will end up hitting a weak ground ball or flare to the outfield. Nice try, but your new philosophy is just plane dumb. I can say with confidence that there is probably not one major league player that has this approach when they hit. And...What if the player has better power to the opposite field (as some players do)? Would you tell them to try and hit an inside pitch the opposite way? Kind of tough to do?
