“Who is that?” is my question after watching a baseball game video of one of my students at-bats. I say one of my baseball hitting students, but that question and situation occurs more often than one would think. I work hitters in practice and they do one thing. Then, a parent sends me their baseball game video and the swings look completely different. Games do funny things to some players, and often they do not even realize they do different things. This is the long way of saying how important game video is, because it may not be the same way players practice. Coaches will have a hard time helping players when they do not see them in games. Having parents film players game at-bats to review is crucial to helping them.
