Soft hands and good footwork will be the focal point in the infield. Bad habits will be removed by locating the bad habit and repetition. The topics are double plays, cut offs and relays, slow hit balls, back hand, throwing and fielding mechanics. Outfield work includes jumps, reads, angles, throwing and positioning.
There really isn’t just one way to hit. Elliot works with the foundation that has already been established, removes bad habits by locating the problem and repetition, work on the mental approach and ensure the best hitting position when the ball is out of the pitcher's hand. Topics include hitting to the opposite field, back-spinning the ball, extension and two strike approach.
Elliot works with players with the base running part of the game. His main focuses are base stealing, reads, what to watch on the pitcher, stealing off a lefty and stealing third.
