In The Softball Clinic Video Blog below we'll show you why this approach will have you in trouble against a good rise ball pitcher, and we will take this premise one step further to improve your line drive contact. This swing they are speaking of works very well for a baseball player where the ball is moving downward or even against a good drop ball pitcher in fastpitch softball, but if they can throw a rise and you take this approach, well, just watch the video and decide for your self if this approach makes sense to you.
