Who says that an 8 year old can't hit bombs and use his whole body to drive the baseball? Instead of doing the "get the foot down, wait, and knob to the ball" swing, Kyle is working to be powerful and get his bat on plane for as long as possible. This drill really helped Kyle feel behind the ball and reinforced the rotation that we were working on before. He's only been in for a few lessons, but there's no doubt that Kyle is going to make Little League fields feel small soon.
