Reply to "Marking Launch angles in batting cages?"

This thread is after all talking about 14 yo trying to hit a round ball with round bat.  I have a hard time getting my 14 yo to consistently be a student and he supposedly practices that 5 days a week for 6 hours.  I know he can't consistently get the optimum launch angle off of his bat quite yet. I do not deny Kris Bryant and Ted Williams try/tried to elevate the ball for HRs.  They are elite hitters with grown man strength. I don't believe a 14 yo will consistently have the functional strength to do this consistently at an optimum launch angle.  For my 2020 I just want the bat to stay through the zone long enough for line drives into the gaps, good things tend to happen for him if that occurs.  I also found this tends not to cloud his mind with over analysis during games. 

I also have this same line drive approach with my 2017 who does hit HRs.  His HRs are big boy power alley and not 337ft over the LF fence. He is a lot closer to man strength than my 2020.
