It starts with the swing, but that's just the first step in the process of hitting.Each individual has different needs Early on while Troy was coaching - he realized that kids weren't necessarily getting better, they were just looking better. He was trying to teach them all one way to swing, instead of working with each individual's strengths.Mental Toughness There is a huge difference between expecting to hit the ball vs. trying to hit the ball Mental approach actually has a physical effect on batspeedMental approach - how do you not overthink when at the plate? 'Hitters have to be smart enough to have a  good approach and dumb enough to get in there and hit.' 'Free hitters up to be athletic and just get in there and compete' Quiet the mind - it's ok to be thinking about 1 thing while at bat - just don't start complicating it by thinking of 5 or 10 different things you need to doTeaching progression A great start is just to have kids watch their favorite big-leaguer and copy what they are seeing. Start with mechanics. Then it comes down to the individual and what they need to become a productive hitter. Great progression chart in the book 9 Innings of HittingShould we teach the ‘oppo first’ approach when setting up our batting practices? You should learn power first and how to swing hard BEFORE learning how to hit to the opposite fieldHIT - Honor, Integrity, Truth As a Christian, Troy uses baseball to be a light in a dark world. As a coach your job is to be a mentor and positive influence in these young peoples' lives.The One that got away Being drafted as a pitcher was really tough for TroyBest borrowed/stolen idea Ed Sheft - Mental toughness - You have to know you are better than your competitorFavorite coaching/leadership quote/book Personal experience is the best teacherRijo Athletics and 9 Innings of Hitting Online video hitting/fielding portal with over 300 videos: rijobaseball.tv Book by Jose Rijo: Creating Winning Relationships through Sports-Reviews are the lifeblood of the podcast!- If you like the podcast- please take 2 minutes to write a review! Click hereReady to be an Awesome Youth Coach?
