Tuesday Tips to Tattoo the Ball
Some ballplayers are naturally aggressive and others, unaggressive. Both player types have their upside and downside. When it comes to hitting, aggressive hitters are often thought of as best, unless they swing at everything. Good coaches realize that the best hitters are those, who are somewhere in the middle, aggressive, but not overly aggressive. Helping hitters to be smart and not overly aggressive, is a gradual process of coaching the strike zone, while helping them learn their hitting strengths and weaknesses.
Helping unaggressive batters become more aggressive is usually a tougher project. These type players often look for walks, or continually hit with two strikes on them because they take a number of pitches and only swing when forced to, with a two-strike count.
All players have a hitting personality and coaches should not try to change that personality completely for fear of messing with their head, but patiently help them move towards the middle of controlled aggression.
