Which is a better swing: Linear or Rotational?

Friday, April 26, 2013 by Eric

Which is a better swing: Linear- when you move towards the ball and the momentum of you moving forward allows you to hit with more power. Or Rotational: when the ball is coming and you stay back and rotate your hips and use the rotation of you hips as power????

I'm pulling everything to the left side. Please help!

Tuesday, March 05, 2013 by Erin

Hi, I am 16years old and play for an 18U travel softball team. I have very quick hands and mostly pull everything to the left side, often fouling. My coaches say my swing and mechanics are just fine but I need to learn to be patient and let the ball come to me. I try to wait longer but I am definitely struggling with this. Any suggestions you can offer? Thanks.

Help snapping hips

Monday, June 21, 2010 by Pam

I am coaching 8 yr old boys and I'm finding many are hitting by rolling their back foot toward the inside ankle instead of using their forefoot to help snap their hips. When they do it right, they feel the difference right away but revert back to the bad habit pretty fast. Is there a way to get them used to doing it the right way?
