09/10/2011 - Accelerated Hitting Weekend (Pre-High School) Josh is a very talented young man who has excellent body control. He is a switch hitter and at present takes a very similar swing from both sides of the plate. At present we like him best from the right side. He has a very athletic set up and stance from both sides of the plate and does a good job of loading and striding into a strong hitting position. He keeps his head down and on the ball throughout the swing from both sides of the plate and shows the ability to make consistent contact. From the right side he is a bit stronger and more controlled, especially in his lower body. He does a very good job of rotating his hips through and firming up his front leg. From the left side he is not quite as coordinated and tends to collapse his lead leg and lunge forward a bit more when he swings. His swing path from both sides is level to the ball and he should be able to drive line drives as he develops more strength. Overall we like the way he is swinging at the plate and see a lot of potential in him especially from the right side. That being said I would continue to work on the left-handed hitting as he is young and does have very good coordination.
