Hitting

Hi Sharon,

I am sorry, but I am not sure what you are asking. Are you saying that your granddaughter only hits off of coaches pitch and cannot hit off a player pitcher? Am I to understand that after four balls on the league she plays in, a coach comes in to pitch? If that is the case, she must be young and fairly new to the game. This is as much a confidence thing and a perception that it is easier to hit off of the coach. She will grow out of it, as at some point (next season) the coach pitch option goes away. With that in mind, perhaps someone can tell her to start "practicing today" hitting off of the pitcher as the coach option will not be there in the older levels. Other than that, you can only wait it out.

Good luck to your granddaughter this season!

Dan
