How do I keep my hip and body closed longer so that I don’t open up too soon? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
Check out the Hersheiser Drill. It’s a great drill and good first step for staying closed and leading with your hip to the plate. Also try landing with your stride foot slightly closed. This may help keep you closed off longer.
Pay attention to posture and glove. Postural shifts to the glove side can cause you to open up early. Also, pulling, dropping or flying open with the glove can also open you up early.

Thanks for the tips! I’ll try them. I’m going to make a video in the upcoming week, so be on the look out for that. Thanks again!
