Waking up early this AM to beat the weather so we can get a lesson in. The kid today is a travel ball player and right now he is primarily a pitcher. He looks like he can hit a little bit but they haven’t used him much in the field. It looks like he can jockey for time in the OF.

Today before hitting we’ll get our drills in. I like to start with routes to get the legs loose and warm up our body, then we will progress to footwork – reads, coming through the ball and always trying to get into a balanced position for the transfer. Quick accurate release is essential for any good player.

Balance will be the key phrase today!
