It appears he has alot of head movement that could creep into his swing.  For his age though you can ask for

a whole lot more.  Great job!

Yeah- I hadn't noticed the head movement. He is very selective at the plate, and walks a lot, so it's not something I had been looking for. But thank you!

He hasn't yet mastered his load- thanks for noticing- now I can use that when we work on his load. I'm still waiting for someone to key in on the big thing in the swing that he has trouble with. ;)

This Ripken You tube video is a good load drill:

I love the video. Great drill. I'm glad he said it was to be an exaggeration. 


The best part was how happy he got after his second swing- he watched that thing for a while! lol Thank you Gregory.

Well, considering I am not one of those few that can see everything from a normal speed video, I replayed this quite a few times.  I would disagree with a couple of comments.  His hands look good (back and approximately at the heights point of the strike zone), they are back and his "load" seems to be fine.  It appears he is getting his weight to the inside of his back leg and as far as too much head movement, at his age it looks good.  His head moves back some, but it doesn't move too much once he drops his front heel to intimate his swing/hips.  I would say to look at his swing in slow motion so you can focus, and see, on what he should work on.  Like I said, I am not one of those guys, which I believe are few and far between, that can look at someone swing full speed and pick up every flaw, if any, they have.  Good luck, he looks good...GREAT for a 9u.  Just keep having fun and working on rotational technique like 95% oh MLB Hall of Famers.
