"You mean "Time ball Hit ball"?"

J Edwards commented on The CheckSwing Clubhouse's group Hitting Coaches and Instructors
"Those 4 positions are worthless. It's the HOW they get to them....tat are the absolutes. Every H of Fer moves his rear hip towards the ball in a coiling/ coiled fashion. Which is a core move and a absolute. The core move is the absolute. The…"

"Richard Lovel this 4 positions can be arrived at wrongly but all 4 fall within this....1) core engagement sequencing 2) The timing of that core engagement start 3) The direction of that core engagement Have a great afternoon"

J Edwards replied to Ben Knaus's discussion Starting Late
"ok good luck. Thanks for the exchange. My point is that its form vs function or style vs absolute.... Cabrera times both the pitcher and the moving ball. Not just the pitcher....BUT, there are many greats who only time the moving ball. Like Reggie…"

J Edwards replied to Ben Knaus's discussion Starting Late
"hahahahaha...Style vs Absolute. The Cabrera clips speak for themselves. He doesn't load early he just starts his lead foot pick up. He still loads late...very late in fact. That's why he is great."

J Edwards replied to Ben Knaus's discussion Starting Late
"So get ready early means load early? or load on time? You can say what you want....but every hitter takes "just do it" and "get ready early" differently. Lets be progressive here and get out of the box. So to speak. The…"

"In my opinion his foundation is being coached out of him. There are only a few "absolutes in a good swing" 1) core engagement sequencing 2) The timing of that core engagement start 3) The direction of that core engament All great hitters…"

"Ok Brandon now lets look at Josh Hamilton when he was with Rangers. Its a 4 clip video....all 4 clips are the same swing. The two clips on left are what Hamilton does BEFORE the ball is released by the pitcher. The two clips on the right are what…"

"Brandon...I see loading in that swing. That barrel loads down behind him very well! I really like that swing to contact. Really like it!!! Here lets look at some timing issues caused and related to the pitched baseball. Your son is very very very…"

J Edwards commented on The CheckSwing Clubhouse's group Hitting Coaches and Instructors
"I just want to point out something here......by asking a couple questions. 1) Does his stride leg reach out? 2) Does his stride leg get moved out by his coiling rear hip? 3) Does his hands load back from his hands or arms? 4) Does his hands load…"

J Edwards commented on The CheckSwing Clubhouse's group Hitting Coaches and Instructors
"Brandon....what I really want to say is that his movement is being coached out of him.....so how do you say this politely? It looks like another hitter coached out of his ceiling and potential. But I say that respectfully hoping it jogs the mind and…"

J Edwards commented on The CheckSwing Clubhouse's group Hitting Coaches and Instructors
"Hey Brandon....Hope all is well..... What was wrong with this swing? His new swing not as good. The leg kick in the new swing gives him a false feel of loading. He isn't loading. In his old swing his rear hip coils forward and that ONE move…"

J Edwards replied to Jack Perconte's discussion Thank You Mike Schmidt - But, Will Anybody Listen
"The left swing is the barrel whip. The barrel cast around the hands. Teach your hitters how to turn the barrel around the hands at launch. At frame one."

J Edwards replied to Jack Perconte's discussion Thank You Mike Schmidt - But, Will Anybody Listen
"You can't not arrive at the right swing path without whipping the barrel around the hands at launch. At frame one. Do not direct the knob at the ball. Do not direct the hands at the ball. Just whip the barrel at launch. Cast it around the…"
