Take the Slack Out of the Front Arm in order to hit harder

Eleven 100mph athletes and over 100, 90mph athletes mostly in the past 5 years and all of them do this very well. As they say success leaves clues.  

Watch this video to see how too much slack in the front arm will KILL your hitting power. 


*  Most tee work encourages hitters to put slack into the front arm and eliminates stretch. This means if you do a lot of tee work you better make sure your not reducing power by doing all your tee practice.   

*  A lot of instruction has become so focused on the shortest path to the baseball that bad information has led to players having too much slack in the front arm. Hands inside the ball sounds good until it eliminates stretch and creates too much slack.
