  1. Reset, step out of the batter’s box and step back in.
  2. Your focal point is the opposite field. As I drop my arm turn your front knee in; as I raise my arm stride, and plant your front foot as I release the ball.
  3. I don’t care if you get jammed on an inside fastball; I want you to try hit it.
  4. You’re over-swinging, keep your head down, and focus on the hats after contact.
  5. Step out and reset, when you swing at a bad pitch, out of the strike zone.
  6. Make sure you stride, and plant your foot on the inside balls of your feet; don’t plant of the tip of your toes.
  7. Get your foot down, and track the ball; if it is not a strike; don’t swing.
  8. Don’t over-swing, track the ball, make contact closer to your body; nice and easy swing and hit it up the middle.
