In the middle of Cole's All-Star fiasco, Nathan decided Cole needed hitting lessons to help him improve. We found a guy through a guy that I work with that was pretty good but, he ended up moving to Nashville after about 6 weeks of working with him. After football season we got hooked up with another guy that is a student assistant for the baseball team here at Union University.
He's been so great for Cole and was impressed with him from the very first lesson. He's young but still knows what to look for and what adjustments need to be made. He does the lessons at the field house of the University and only charges $15 for 30 minutes. Suhweeeet! I'll take that all day!
I didn't have the flash on in any of these photos...I didn't want to be any more distracting than I probably already was.
Nathan had me video a few of his lessons to see where Cole needs improvement and to track how he's coming along. This is just from one night about a month ago. I know that David is pretty much throwing perfect pitches to him but, OH...MY...GOSH! Cole may actually hit a home run over the fence this year! And if he does, Nathan has already agreed that he owes him a new video game of his choice.
It'll be a little different when he's wearing a helmet and trying to hit off of kids that still throw pretty wild but, he's got his timing down pretty darn well and should be able to get tons of base hits with no problem. Watching him makes us sooooo excited for baseball season to start!
