I just turned 20 and I am a righty. I have never batted lefted and am in now way ambidextrous. I want to learn to bat left and have already started practicing.
The hardest part I found was getting my left side to do what my right side does instinctivey. Mainly, Loading up and “Squashing the bug”.
However I’ve been having friends throwing me some pitches and while most of my swings are weak, I’ve had some promising hacks where everything felt perfect, my load up my form, follow threw, everything.
Is it worth continuing? I don’t really plan to swing lefty in a game for another year or two until I feel 100% comfortable.
