John Mabry, Hitting Coach for the St. Louis Cardinals, shares advice for young hitters. (Click image for video).
"Just swing the bat.
Don’t get too technical and mechanical too early. Because a lot of times the kids aren’t strong enough to do what they’re supposed to be doing, and that creates bad habits.
And trying to drill those habits into them at an early age can cause some major flaws later on.
So, hitting off a tee is really important. As boring as it is, it helps you repeat your swing. And big league players do it every day."
