Please take at a look at my sons mechanics and let me know what you think


#2

Rythem problems. Lower and upper body are not connected.


#3

He shifts his weight back towards 2B before lifting his knee and going forward. This create unnecessary movement that can affect control and it gives baserunners a jump. The cause is that he sets up on the rubber with his feet too far apart. Have him narrow his feet position until he can lift and go forward only.


#4

Agree with Roger…your son should try experimenting with a beginning stance that has his feet no wider apart than armpit-to-armpit. Maybe just a little bend at the knees. As he goes into his leg lift have him start his front hip forward, toward the target.
