You Will NEVER Be An Elite Hitter If...

If there is any confusion about whether or not your player is on the right or wrong path to becoming the type of hitter that dominates after highschool...

...here are a few things to keep in mind.

Sidenote: I would hold this standard up for players 15 & up.

In my opinion, you can get away with a lot before the Varsity level.

Anything above, I believe requires a HARD look at approach, mind-set and non-negotiable attributes that make a good hitter great.

If you want to get a better feel for where your kid stacks up, here are a few ideas to consider.

I'll keep it short & sweet.

You will NEVER be an elite hitter if...

  • if you don't understand hitter's counts or count-leverage.
  • if you don't know how to post-up & take aggressive swings on pitches up in the zone.
  • if your shoulders shrug when someone asks you what your approach is at the plate.
  • if you say your approach is only "see ball, hit ball".
  • if you underestimate the power of competing in the batter's box.
  • if you can't be your own hitting coach during an at-bat.
  • if you don't like hitting in the late innings with the game on the line...

Period.
