Not ever having been a baseball guy, I need a little guidance.
I have a 2024 who has been taking batting lessons from the same coach for a couple years. Coach is a great guy who connects with my son. My son is a very solid hitter who takes lessons vary seriously.
The coaches has the pedigree and is well respected. His dad had a cup of coffee in the MLB. I don't think Coach follows the new trends, or does a lot of research into new methods; but teaches what he knows (which seems considerable). This is in contrast to many coaches in town who introduce all sorts of stuff to make the hitter "less comfortable"and or claim their methods are cutting edge.
1) How can you tell how if a kid is beginning to exceed the ability of a coach to help him?
2) Is there a newer method- whether technology based or not, that seems to be giving better results than a traditional method.
