I’m sure most of you coaches have run up against this issue in one way or the other; but my question is on the topic of the glove side foot flip, with the lead foot finishing pointing directly toward the target.
I know that there are countless examples of the pros that finish this way, and I am teaching my 13U boys to work on this, but I have run up against a father/son that were taught for this front foot to finish at a 3/4 open position (pointing between 3rd and home for a righty). How do I get them to “change their ways”? This seems to be a struggle for me and any coach to re-train ones that have bad habits.
Any thoughts or comments?
