It’s too easy..

Interesting conversation with a parent after one of my sessions last week.

We had been working on hitting front foot drives, and had finished with a game, with bobble feeds from the coach – making it “too easy” for the players to hit the ball.

As I explained to the parent, just about the only way for a batter to strike a low bouncing (almost rolling) delivery back towards the feeder is with a vertical bat – the feed forced the batsmen to approximate the front foot drive, rather than just hitting the ball anyhow.

A perfectly reasonable question…I probably should make a point of explaining some of the “madness” to the parents, in future.
