For 10/11 year olds:
We got killed by a fast pitcher last game. We are going into the final games of the season and we will be facing more of the same. It has happened earlier in the season too, maybe not every time, but we've struggled with the guys throwing heat. I've usually tried to throw BP easy enough for the boys to work on their swing and build confidence...but maybe that's the problem. Any advice?
Also, any advice on 2 strike hitting with age group? ..I have tried to stress not trying to kill the ball and just make contact with 2 strikes, but it doesn't seem to register with them.
We are trying to hang on and make a playoff run. Gotta get the bats going.
Thanks for the help.
