Keep Your Front Elbow Down
One cue that you will frequently hear hitting coaches espouse
is that the hitter must keep their front elbow down.
Keeping the front elbow down is
said to be important because it helps to ensure that the barrel
stays above the hands and the ball, helps the hitter stay on top of the ball
and not uppercut it, and prevents the development of a loop in the swing.
The problem is that, and as I also discuss in my pieces on...
...a loop in the swing isn't the problem that many
people think it is.
As I discuss in
high-level swing has a loop in it.
