Hi, I'm Michele Smith and I want to talk a little bit about proper soft toss. A lot of times coaches will throw the ball at the hitter and we don't want to do this, is because what it does is it jams them up, ties them up, ends up shortening up their swing. So a lot of times what we see is that the soft toss is thrown at the hitter and that's not proper. What we want to do for proper soft toss instead of throwing at the hitter is to throw the ball straight up and straight down. So almost as it comes up it's like it's sitting on a tee. So we want to toss it straight up, straight down. That's gonna be and give the hitter a great opportunity to have a good swing on a good ball that's realistic. So let's go ahead and take a cut. Excellent. Hopefully that will help you and your team.
