This week's installment of my Winter Series is brought to you by a good question that I received on my last post. Last week I did a video about isolating the coil and then feeling the separation created out from the coil. Here is the question that I got from Mike about that video about the stride and separation.
This was a good question and a good opportunity to show you how it works with a stride and separation. I choose to film this from the behind the plate view so that you can see the coil followed by the separation that occurs when the hitter "goes". I think it's important to understand that max separation should only occur if the hitter decides to swing.
The coil and the stride however, should always occur. I will say that there might be some separation on a taken pitch because the hitter should always assume they will swing but max separation will only happen for a full commitment to the pitch.
I hope this answers the questions that came up and I would love to answer any other questions that you guys might have.
