thanks for the imput vinny and i did hit it i believe i was 17 -20 with 12 homers so i wasnt asking because i cant hit it i just had to move around in the box and couldnt stand where i normally do and my question was to find out what others did to hit it

Focus! I like when a pitcher throws a curve or knuckle as it makes me look at the ball harder. Same thing when a pitcher starts goofing around...I dial in more.

Thanks i understand that you have to focus more.Actually what i wanted to say was that im right handed and stand in the front of the box and pretty close to the plate so these guys were throwing right at me and the ball was breaking to the plate. i was having a hard time deciding whether to swing or not and i wanted some input on what guys did to help them hit these curves

cat i try and catch it up front with the curve ball(just after the ball breaks a little).we were getting them in reno b/c of the wind and i was having a blast with them.i stand with my front foot up near the front of the mat,also stand about 2/3 thirds of the box away from the plate(i'm 5"10) so i can cover all the plate.also try and recognize where the ball is gonna curve for you when hitting,mine is when it starts just behind me,then it will curve into my wheel house....have fun and keep hitting them hard....

Relax,it is my favorite pitch to hit.You know its coming and the break is consistent.I wait for the slightly inside pitch which curves into my power zone.
