Has anyone tried out the Derek Jeter Hurricane hitting trainer?.. or the Nedco Bat Action Pro 360? They look like they're exactly the same thing...
When I was a kid, I used to use the Johnny Bench Batter Up back in the 70's. It was great. You can tell if you're hitting the ball solid by the way it winds up.
My son has been struggling lately. Between me and the head coach, I think we've gotten it wrong, quite frankly. He's always been a great hitter, but he's popping up, fouling off to the right a lot. He is only 9, and I think part of it is getting his timing with different kids pitching.
But there's also, something weird about the way his back elbow comes in and his back shoulder drops. So, we've told him this and that, and I think it's got him in a spin.
I was wondering if this might be a good thing for him just go out out and pound some balls, and he'd be able to see when he 'swings level'. (although isn't a downward motion?)
