11/07/2015 - Hitting Accelerated Training Weekend (Ages 14-18)
Christian starts from an athletic, square stance and takes a square stride to start. The hands should become more activated by pushing them up and back slightly as the stride foot is coming down to create separation. Contact points should be a major focus for Christian moving forward, as letting the ball travel deeper into the hitting zone will allow his swing to become shorter and more compact and also help his ability to utilize a whole field approach. Getting more drive from the lower half will also help develop more bat speed which will lead to the ball jumping off the bat at contact with more power for Christian. A 2019 grad, Christian has the time ahead of him to develop and get the most out of his game with continued hard work.
