Nice work, my fellow primate.

It's always nice to beat a sponsored team.   How far are your fences, or do you play without them?
Two of our ballparks have the standard field distance and set-up, but we do play the occasional game on a field behind a schoolhouse, and that field can't be more than 200-10. I remember, years back, being in right, and watching at least 5 balls sail over my head. At one point, I just sat down with my glove beside me. Not much else I could do.   Grin

Going to play tomorrow after two week layoff (1 week for 4th, 1 week skipped to see if cortisone injection in shoulder helps).

Tied yesterday. One great inning where we played great, only to defensively collapse in the bottom of the 7th. Comedy of errors.   Undecided

Beat another "A" team last night in the first game.

Second game, down one, top 7 one on and the guy at the end of the order hits into a double play.  Our leadoff hitter then lined out to end it.  I was on deck, and getting totally jazzed to tie the game or put us up.   It's like blue balls when the last out happens.

Move your front foot 3-5 inches outward, and make sure your top hand is open, and try to pull everything until it corrects.

Probably turning over too much.   Make sure your middle knuckles line up.  Many who try this feel like their top hand should be more close, as this forces the palm to face forward, but it's correct.  Give it a shot.

I've found a lot of hitters think that, but are lining up the wrong ones.  They have their top hand's  second "door knocking" knuckles lining up with their bottom hand's third (punching) knuckles.

Ask someone to make a batting grip without a bat.  They almost always do this.

I won't offer any hitting tips, Cal. Always found hitting slumps were like headaches - they only go away when you stop thinking about them. Go have some laughs and fun; the hits will come.   Smiley

Pretty sure you're right...was holding the bat last night and it felt weird with the knuckles lined up.

Yeah, once you get used to it, you'll see it's easier to extend and drive your wrists through.

Hope it comes back around. Keep loose. Give the bat an extra waggle while setting up. And remember to breathe through your eyelids, like the lava lizards.  Grin
