- Taking the movement out of a young hitter who is struggling often makes it more difficult for them. This takes away their momentum.
- Does the young hitter really need to understand how they are transferring their weight in order to do it? Probably not.
- If we can get them moving, get some momentum, they have a chance to get going.
- Albert Pujols can hit without a lot of movement because he’s an elite athlete and is incredibly strong. It makes sense to avoid trying to get a younger hitter to hit like him because of the obvious differences in experience, skill and strength.
- Keep the momentum going!
