She tends to have a different approach for 0 or 1 strike vs. 2 strikes. She's relatively selective on 0 and 1, although doesn't let many strikes go by. Swings at anything close on 2 strikes, she's a pretty good contact hitter. Doesn't strike out often but has seen more at the 4 slot. But we're talking 1 in the 7/8 slot vs. 2 or 3 in the 4 slot all summer. She's a catcher so has a relatively good sense of the strike zone.Would you consider her an aggressive hitter who can hit pitches further out in the zone, in out up or down?. Or is she more of a selective hitter only swings at certain pitch locations?
Hbp and walks is productive in its own way.
when in 4 slot
Are you seeing more strikeouts? Or are you just seeing she's not hitting as much with the same amount of strikeouts as in 7 slot?
She struggles hitting a change up so that might be it. She might be getting more change ups higher in the order.
