Eduar asked: rick its eduar the high school jv 2nd base.

Rick answered: Some information on hitting power.

Your hitting power is generated from the ground up. The rotation of your back foot allows you to turn and open your hips.

Foot rotation starts before your hands. Feet first, hands last. Without that back foot rotation, your swing becomes all arms.

The more you can turn your hips without turning your shoulders, the more power you generate.

If you haven't already, look at hitting progressions advanced.

Not having seen you swing, it is hard to say if there are some mechanics issues which are causing you trouble, or if it is all based on strength issues. I would think a combination of the two.

Let me know if you see anything you feel might be part of the power issue, there are remedies and drills for anything that is going on.

Yours in baseball,
