Often times we will see a post and there is already a good answer replied so
there is no reason to waste time with writing the same thing over and over.
Other times there be question that is just to open ended to answer. Like
what size bat should I use, well that is just impossible to answer a general
question like that you have to know the size of the player, physical
strength of the player, what is her strong point short game, long, or both.
Then you have to look at the speed of the bat both before and after hitting
ball. On top of that every bat model is different and you might get the same
results from different sized bat depending on what material its made out of
so you have to go back and look at the players strength and weakness are
again. Then when all is said and done the player will still probably do
better with what ever bat they are the most comfortable with. This
paragraph would be three times as long if I went into the same kind of info
for pitchers. I have seen some great replies to specific questions on this
board. Like your post back in Dec about the tag up, it had several good
replies but this was a specific question. Remember no coach out there wants
to give bad advice to a player or a parent so when we see an open ended
question its better to say nothing then give bad advice.
p.s. I guess you completely missed the squash grip thread. :)
