Useful 2 Strike Hitting Approaches for Kids

Choking up on the bat seems to turn most hitters off, nowadays. So, instead of trying to convince kids that is a good strategy when they have a 2-strike count, coaches can suggest two other 2 strike hitting approaches. One, tell players to think of hitting balls back through the middle when they get to two strikes. That plan prevents over-swinging, a common thing for hitters. Two, ask players to widen their stance a little, which helps them avoid lunging at the ball. Hitters get anxious about striking out with two strikes, so these 2 strike hitting approaches can help that anxiousness.
