Dante Bichette & sons hitting lesson

"spunds a lot like what Mike Epstein and now his son Jake, have been advocating and teaching for the better part of 30 years. Good stuff. A little extreme on the lead elbow by Jr, but good stuff."

"Good stuff, Don. Sounds like something right out of Mike Epstein's book, Ted Williams. I would say that the part about the shoulders rotating might be a little off though...the shoulders will rotate from Approach to Contact and the tilt is not…"
