Discussion: Softball Magazine's Senior Softball Camp, December 2-5

The softball magazine camps are first class all the way, and even though its next week, I think you may still sign up. 3 days of full instruction on offense, defense and conditioning. Lunch provided every day, demo bats from all the sponsors and a banquet where you receive a senior bat package. That alone covers most of the cost...and when you add in the instruction, its a priceless way to kickstart the new season. Alot of top senior pros like Steve Imlay, Davey Reed and Bobby Davis from Dudley and Bobby NYfong from Combat...Bruce Fairchild, George Robinson...Dennis Turner..just to nane a few. Looking forward to it.

Hitters will definately increase the power of the unwind and rotation, if they wind the hips during the stride and timing of the swing. 5 steps teach this simply and 4 great drills you can do to reinforce this. It actually cuts back lunging and helsp alot with tempo and timing.All shows are free, on youtube and can be accessed with descriptions off our site at wwww.sportstechnique.com

Discussion: Has anyone had L5 spinal fusion and returned to good playing form?

I've been suffering from spinal stenosis of L5 for 2 years now. Spasms, and feet numbness since June. I am scheduled for Dec. 17 laminectomy and fusion however, I keep reading nightmare stories and wonder if I should continue on where at least I am mobile and can stand the discomfort. Has anyone had successful fusion and returned to playing and hitting?
kennethvanbogaert@gmail.com is my email. thank you in advance.

Discussion: Favorite Baseball Movie

Im an hour from the Field of Dreams movie set...very pristine yet, and awesome. Informal, just show up and like kids in a playground...take your turn in the field and then hit. No admission, no one to tell you what to do..just go on the field and enjoy. Dyersville Iowa. They had Kostner and a bunch of celebs for a 25th anniversary game last year. Fantastic...just a small gift shop. A quarter century later, and people flock to it as foretold in the movie..

'
As amazing an athlete as I have ever seen, 80 Rudy went from hitting 250' to 340' by working on his rotation and doing 250 perfect snaps a day. 5'9 174, and 80 years old, he truly is an inspiration to every hitter. Singles became topspin line drives that he works to place into the gaps.
Drills to develop this and the cutoff bat to promote good practice are introduced. Swing Makeover #33. www.sportstechnique.com

Discussion: "Timing & Power Slumps? Balance Rotation and BatHead Snap" Swing Makeover #31

While we know the hips lead the swing, working the Hip Rotation and Drive and Extension of the Hands and Bathead snap, must be in balance to hit properly.

Discussion: Hitting from tee vs. hitting pitched ball

Thanks Bud...I would add that a lot of the great hitters I see really build up muscle memory and strength from tee work. Imlay has long power off the tee from all his reps on it...The only problem I see with tee work, is to make sure you use your tested game mechanics on it. I've gotten in a bad habit of sometimes experimenting with changes in technique on it..and have actually improved tee hitting performance over my game swing..but when I go to a live game..I've had that blow up in my face. Because with no timing or spacing issues on the tee, you can get away with bad mechanics that do well off the tee, but fail vs. live pitching. A hitter has to closely follow what works well vs. live. Gtee is what we use and pretty sweet.
