    Real interest or being played to fill a camp?

    After thinking about what I wrote, I decided I may have misinterpreted a reply, so deleted that part. You replied quickly enough to see the unedited post.

    Real interest or being played to fill a camp?

    DD is a sophomore and has no idea where she wants to go to school or what she wants to major in apart from it being in the medical field. It surprises me at the number of young women who seem to have life figured out at that age and know where they want to study and where they want to do it. I...

    Real interest or being played to fill a camp?

    DD will be a 2025 graduate and recently set up a Twitter account for recruiting purposes. Recently, she was contacted through Twitter by a D1 school greeting her by name and hoping she had a great Christmas. The message went on to say that the school is limited in their communication prior to...

    Hitting coach SE Wisconsin / NE Illinois

    I'm looking for a hitting coach in SE WI / NE IL for my first-year 16U daughter as her prior coach has left the area. I'd prefer someone with a verifiable track record of success in coaching. Thank you for any suggestions you may offer.

    Swing evaluation please

    Could you explain "separation" in layman's terms?

    Swing evaluation please

    Well, I thought the video with the 70 mph exit velo was hitting well when I posted it.

    Swing evaluation please

    No, sorry, she was meeting with the Dad 2X/wk for 1.5 - 2 hrs.. Now, she has team practice 2X/week and occasionally meets with her regular hitting coach, but he has limited availability. It's mostly me and my wife in the backyard having he do tee work and pitching using a Jugs lite-flite machine...

    Swing evaluation please

    I would tend to agree with you. The first video is a HitTrax session and aiming for the leaderboard for exit velo and distance is something that I don't think is helpful to development.

    Swing evaluation please

    A couple of times a week versus nothing for the past 2 months.

    Swing evaluation please

    Thank you for the detail to the photos. Can you explain what "dumping the barrel" means and how to fix it?

    Swing evaluation please

    No worries, I really appreciate the willingness to help out. I've learned enough to know that "squishing the bug" is a bad thing. So, instead, she should be using the ball of her foot on her back foot simply as a pivot point and her hips should be driving the motion?

    Swing evaluation please

    Thank you for taking the time to explain this with the screenshots. Can you recommend a video I could show DD regarding her posture at toe touch?

    Swing evaluation please

    Sorry, but I don't know what you mean by "fire the back foot".

    Swing evaluation please

    Agreed, it was shortly before leaving for a game and she was doing some last-minute warming up. The Crocs aren't causing the hitting issues however.

    Swing evaluation please

    Thank you for the input, what can be done to get her to stop dumping the barrel?

    Swing evaluation please

    Over the winter we met another family at the local indoor hitting cages and my 14U DD began hitting with the Dad and his 18U DD. Over the course of 4 months, this Dad raised my DD's average exit velocity up by almost 10 mph and DD was killing the ball at dome tournaments. Since this spring, the...

    Bat cracked?

    Yes, DD's bat looked like that about 6 weeks ago. This happened Friday night hitting off the HitTrax machine. We bought the bat in early July, so it's under warranty. The replacement is going to be used exclusively as a game bat in the future and we picked up an LXT that was in great shape at...

    Feedback on daughter's swing

    I'm looking for some feedback on my daughter's stance and swing. My daughter turned 13 a couple of months ago and in a discussion with her coaches about their expectations for her this upcoming season, one coach said he wanted her to "own" her progression in hitting. He then went on to recommend...
