Re: What are the best techniques for teaching baseball to a four-year-old?
gl, I edited your thread title in hopes that it might attract the attention of some who may have overlooked it last week.
Here's a question that I don't think has been answered: At a little less than four years old, which is more important - to enforce a proper swing, even if it frustrates him, or to just let him hit the ball and have fun? At what age does teaching and enforcing a proper swing, even if it causes frustration and conflict, become essential?
My son has a good stance, but uses a sort of hacking swing. He makes contact, but only when I throw it in on his hands, right where I know he's going to swing. Anything outside that small area, he will miss. Is this something that will be hard to unlearn later, even at this young age?
