Former Big Leaguer Jody Reed shares a tip on how to make sure you stay inside the baseball in this segment. Coach Reed like to use the stick as a visual aid to train the mind and body for what it should feel when done properly. The term staying inside the baseball is used often in the game, but sometimes it can be misunderstood as to what it means. Coach Reed wants to make sure that we stay away from the casting motion that so many young players have, because it tend to lead to ground balls and less power.
