Brewers Need HELP too may K's

Son plays 13u. Lefty, tall, long arms/legs can't connect and getting lots of K's. Video taped his swing using coaches eye app slowed it down. Appears he was leading with his back elbow and casting his hands out. Corrected that but still can't connect. Hoping I could find someone who can take a look at the video or suggest who can look at the video and help correct this. Unfortunately all the good hitting coaches in my area are booked (already tried that route). I can help with drills and such but don't have enough knowledge to make sure we are doing the right thing. Any help much appreciated he is quite frustrated and driving me nuts!

Thumbs up

It could just be a mental thing, especially at that age, young kids take failure a lot harder than teens and grown ups do. He probably just had a few bad games and no he lost all of his confidence. Just let him know that your proud of him as long as he's giving 100 percent. Its just something he has to go through, and he will be a better player because of it. I remember when I was in little league one year out of the blue I struck out almost every single at bat,(going from being the leading hitter on my team the year before). That year was so valuable to me because it gave me thick skin and I learned how to fail. Knowing how to bounce back from failure it the most important part of baseball, because you are going to fail at least 60 percent of the time.

Mental, no one has a perfect swing. The more advice he gets the worse it gets. Have him go up to bat with a plan. In highschool I struck out a lot, in college I had a plan to hit the first fastball that was a strike. Once I had plan in place I didn't worry about other things, it was awesome.

Mental is always part of it. Confidence is important and confidence is a product of mastery.
Try to get him to recognize the type of pitch and where it's going to end better. It's called pitch recognition. Not hit the green ball don't hit the red or look for the number on the ball drills. This is actually seeing the shape of the pitch and the initial trajectory factors.
Dr. Peter Fadde is the best mind in the game at this skill.
