Discussion: Top Arm Extension a good Fix for an Uppercut Swing Episode #91

https://youtu.be/evBFwHPqk5M
Getting proper top arm extension, is a good way to balance too much rotation and the dragging of the lead arm and knob at an up angle...which in turns causes the bat head to drop and creates a golfing uppercut swing.

Great job working with the campers Bruce. The Pro's all worked hard and Steve Imlay and I thought the best improvement we've seen in the 4 camps. Wish we had more free time to all visit, but super job and see you during the season.

This simple adjustment and focus, can make all the difference in taking an out of control stride and transforming the entire following swing into a controlled, relaxed step and correct launch angle. Also Bear's Twisted Mistress encounter. Filmed at SSUSA worlds.

Discussion: Major++

Having friends on the team, I am biased, but Major Plus is big boy softball...I personally would like to see no border restrictions...no east, west restrictions.. and let all play even up. If someone builds a dynasty, congrats. Its major plus, and not everyone needs a ribbon. I respect SSUSA and a big fan of all they do to keep things competitive...but in my opinion, this is the "pro" division and if the heat is too much, disband and start over.. major plus to me is major plus.
