I just want to thank you again. I have Ethan working on landing flat footed as well as changing his arm movement as you suggested in the forum. It seems he is really on board with this and what I’ve found most helpful is having him watch the video more himself, instead of just me watching it and talking to him. I will post more video soon.
This is just exciting, he dominates teams.
Last week, he pitched against the 2nd best team in his league 4 innings, had 9k’s, 2 walks, 1 hit, two ground outs and 1 pop out. He actually broke a kids $400 aluminum bat with an inside fastball. I never saw that before. This week against 12-13’s in a travel game he faced 12 had 57 pitches 9 first pitch strikes 5ks, 1 walk, 1 hit, 1 error and held them to one unearned run in 3 innings.
What was more amazing was listening to his 2 catcher’s in the dugout. They said they like catching Ethan the most because if they give him a sign and put their mitt low and outside, he hits the mitt, inside, he hits the mitt, high, he hit’s the mitt. What a great complement.
Also, I have his coaches on board regarding one game a week and one of the coaches who’s son definitely has potential is very interested in how I teach Ethan.
The video tape tells all.
Congratulations. Yes…letting the student watch the video is key. Otherwise it will not register.
Verbal instruction alone is very difficult to understand. Seeing is believing.
