Rx'd: 1 Round of 7-10
-Hold bat in lead hand.
-Toss ball no higher than front shoulder
-Step in with back foot
-Flow, flow flow. Create a nice, smooth rhythm here. Notice the tension....then get rid of it.
[Note: This drill with my 9 year olds was surprisingly rocky to start. Swings and misses everywhere. I was like, "I had no idea you guys were bad at this!!" But this has turned into one of the most beneficial drills for that reason....improving bat on ball, hand/eye. So to begin, player may need to figure out their rhythm just to make contact. But once they're consistently doing that, remember that this is all about RHYTHM. Look how relaxed Mike is. He never rushes. Like he says, "Don't rush, be on time." Such a monsterous concept that I'll say it again: Don't rush, be on time. THAT is our goal here.]
"Clint, I wanted to give you an update on Sarah. We have watched 5 of the 6 Bulletproof Hitter lessons and she’s really liked them. With all the rain we’ve been having in Georgia, our tournament was canceled this weekend. We did have a “friendly” with a couple of top notch teams yesterday and she looked like Sarah!! 2 great at bats, fighting off multiple pitches then putting the ball in play. A great bunt, which scored a run. One strikeout, with a dropped third strike and she made it safely to first. Defensively, she was spot on. All I can say is, thanks! We plan on watching the sixth lesson this week. I’m sure she will still have some struggles, but thanks to your lessons she now has tools to work herself through them. Thanks again!"
