Back in 2005, I was asked to participate in the inaugural “Hitting Challenge” at Webball.com. Along with four other authors, including Dave Hudgens (who was the hitting coach for the Oakland A’s at that time), we were asked to write a brief description of the important hitting fundamentals we teach, especially to young hitters. Richard Todd, the editor of Webball.com, encouraged us to be creative in the way we presented our ideas on hitting. As you will read, I decided to incorporate many of the hitting keys I teach in a fictional story. It was fun to write and I received some nice comments and suggestions from the readers who provided feedback to the authors.
