THE STRIKE ZONE (PART 1)
Understanding the strike zone is not enough. The majority of us expect so much of our players in terms of them knowing “what is a strike” and “what is not.” It’s easy right? Anything that crosses the plate is a strike from the knees to the letters. If it doesn’t, it’s a ball and no swing is required.
The truth is that there are so many more variables to this question. The real question that should be asked is, what is that particular players strike zone? What can they hit and not hit? What can they hit and what can they hit well? What can they hit well and what can they absolutely crush? Knowing this can allow growth to soar in terms of hitting.
