    You guys must have been reading my mind!!! My buddies and I were just talking about how similar golf can be to hitting. I love the concept of slow practice and this can be something that a hitter could do daily. Couple of questions:

    1. Where do you start with younger kids? At the end and work backwards? What are your thoughts on this? An example would be start at contact and go backwards.

    2. You guys refer to kinesthetic awareness quite often, what are some of the cues that you would use or should I alllow my hitters to establish their own?

    Keep up the good work and loved the Vandy sweatshirt, Anchor down!

      I forgot to answer your 2nd question. Everyone is different in how they respond to cues and why we believe teaching reality is vital. You must then let the individual establish their own cues. I like to think of it as giving someone an outline and allowing them the individuality to fill in the rest with maybe a hint from time to time.

    You guys got it! Keep up the good work.

    This site is like nothing else on the net! Awesome!

    If I could make one suggestion, I would like to see you guys post more frequently. I’m being selfish, I know, but you’re stuff is so original and it’s not the same old cookie cutter stuff that everybody else speaks of, it’s 100% original.

    Thanks for all your doing for the development of baseball!

      Thanks for the kind words! We have plans to do more in 2013. Hang with us as we get the hang of this!

    Thanks for your comments! I think starting from the end and working backwards can be beneficial and I do that from time to time. This drill can be extremely beneficial for young kids assuming you can keep their attention to detail. For most youngsters, I just like to get them learning intent to swing hard and having fun! If players do this drill correctly often, they will notice tremendous improvement. I did a complete overhaul of the swing by having someone do this drill 30 minutes daily for 1 month. When they swung the bat again, the changes were dramatic in a good way!

    Anchor down!

    I like the drill. My question is, why do you not like Tee work as your stated in your video?

  • Hunter March 15, 2013, 1:57 am

    Thanks for the question and the interest. I have had this asked by more than a few people so I will do a post about that in the near future. Keep checking in.

    Thanks again,
