|As a hitter, your goal is to apply equal to greater force than that which is coming
at you. To do so, coordination and bat control are needed as well.
Do you have an area of expertise? Do you have ideas
you would like to share with others? Maybe you're a
craftman or a skilled laborer.
Many young hitters are not successful because of the way that they distribute
their force. Delivering this force properly will help aid in their hand-eye
coordination as well. Now it's just a matter of timing.
A swing motion must occur in a split second. One body part aids in another's
ability to perform its job correctly, and so on. Recognizing one problem and
correcting it just might fix two or three other problems.
There are many who could benefit from your knowledge.
Don't keep your ideas locked away.
How many times have you heard a coach tell one of his players to get his elbow
up during his stance? Why?? First of all, before I go any further let me make the
following statement clear:
If you can't give an educated reason why something should or shouldn't be
done, then you shouldn't be teaching it that way. Now, with that said...
The same coach who is telling his player to get his elbow up is also most likely
telling him that he is dropping his shoulder during his swing as well. Think about
it...you can't swing a bat if your elbow remains in an upward position. Therefore,
the natural reaction at the start of the swing is going to be a drop of the elbow.
However, this is where the law of opposite reactions comes into play. When the
back elbow drops, the front elbow comes up. Grab a bat and try it. Make sure
you apply force to your swing in order to witness this occurring. When the front
elbow comes up, so does the front shoulder. What does the back shoulder do??
Keeping your knowledge a secret is only holding you
back. Learn to profit from your valuable ideas while
If you teach your hitters to relax their back elbow, their hands can work freely
and they have less of a chance of dropping the back shoulder. This is an
example of one flaw leading to another.
