Re: MAnkin and the machine
Rock on with the reps!
I have a Jugs Curveball pitching machine. I'm in the middle of rewiring it so that it will throw change-ups and possibly curveballs without having to adjust the dials so the batter cannot tell what pitch is coming next. I hope to have it finished and tested today.
The off-speed pitches are killing the 11-12 year olds on my son's team. My son just wants to hit the damn ball at all costs and is over anxious and not near patient enough. I hope this modification will fix that problem and move him up to the next hitting level.
I think patience is even more important to rotational hitting and less important in linear hitting because in extension at the point of contact in rotational hitting is the enemy.
