Do you hit farther off a tee or from live pitching?
If I hit a 375 44 core ball 320' off the tee. How far should I hit with live pitching if my timing is right.

Hey Lefty, probably about 285'.
(just kidding)
There are so many variables in a live pitch. Even BP you can hit a ball out, where in a live game you may not be able to hit a ball over 275'. Seldon does the perfect pitch and perfect swing come at the same time.
Some guys can power a bad pitch out of the park. I need the pitch and swing to happen at the same time.
It is really a head game.

I do agree with Crusher about the head game. I think alot of guys do well in BP but suck in a game because they/we think to much. When you step into the box know your job and have faith in yourself every time. Also, hitting off of a Tee is the best thing you can do for the hand/eye coordination. If you hit well off of a Tee, you'll do fine in a game.
