Letting the ball get deep vs Hitting the ball out front

August 19, 2014 by

A friend and former teammate of mine is doing pretty well for himself in the instructional world of baseball.  His coaching experience (including USA baseball), his hitting clients (several major leaguers), his website, and now online radio show has grown more popular and I couldn’t be happier for him.  Kevin Wilson knows hitting and high level players are taking notice.

The video below was taken, with permission, from his website.  I’d like you to watch it for two reasons.  First, his demeanor will show you why he is so successful as a teacher of the game, and second, you’ll learn about a common issue facing many hitters.  That is, “do I stay back and let the ball get deeper so that I can see the ball longer or do I focus on hitting the ball out front?”

I think you will find his explanation helpful.
