Dropping hands only during live pitching
I also work with the pitchers who are dealing with injury problems. Dropping the hands is caused by not tilting; it's the only way to get down to the pitch. Additionally, the dropping of the hands leads to a longer elbow and arm swing which makes it difficult to square the ball up, especially on higher ones. Advanced Hitting Progressions It all takes time, get him to slow down, focus on picking up the baseball at the pitcher's release point, tracking it all the way to the hitting zone and putting a good swing on it.
