08/31/2013 - Hitting Accelerated Training Weekend (Ages 12-14) Tanner is a strong kid with length and shows the ability to hit the baseball to the pull side with good power. He also shows the ability to use his hands well, which allows him to get the barrel to the middle of the baseball, but it is to the pull side the majority of the time. He needs to let the baseball travel into the hitting zone, this will allow him to hit the baseball to all fields, and he has the ability to hit to all fields with power. Since he tends to hit the baseball out in front of the contact point, he tends to let his hips drift towards the baseball, is he continues to do this it will be a difficult habit to break. He needs to focus on letting the baseball travel and staying strong on the front side during the swing and not letting the body drift toward the baseball.
