One of my favorite questions to ask a kid is, "How many at bats did you take today?"
Ask your son, they get very confused. 3? 4?
The Answer should be 21+.
Very few players take advantage of the dugout to prepare for their at bat. How pitchers pitch to your teammates will tell you slot about how they will pitch to you. If every pitch is aimed outside the crowd the plate and not even worry about the inside.
If you try to hit everything you will be able to hit nothing.
