When coaching baseball and softball athletes, one of the most important jobs that we have is being "translators."

When it comes to hitting in baseball and softball, it is one of the hardest things to do in sports. That's why as hitting coaches, we need to focus on our players feeling the movements instead of focusing on the biomechanics and complex terminology that can be overwhelming.
