[quote=“bruno6u”]I am sure more than one person here has seen that. The kid gets into the cage and murders every ball. Then gets into the game and doesn’t get it past the pitcher because he doesn’t swing all the way through. They are so afraid of striking out that once the bat hits the ball they stop their bat.
Is there any ideas to get them to get rid of the mindset just because they feel the ball hit the bat to keep swing through it?[/quote]
I know exactly what you are talking about. Many people go through this at one time or another in their hitting careers.
I understand that this tip is easier said than done but it works. Hitting in large part is mental. You have to put fear aside. You must go up to bat confident and ready to attack the ball. Most of the time striking out is caused by swinging at bad pitches. Minimize swinging at bad pitches and attack the ball.
