Not sure who the current hitting GURUs out here are now of the likes of HITTER, Boulders Dad, ..... others but love to hear feedback on a current scenario. I've seen lots of kids , parents, coaches experiment with what's the right bat size weight/length for their hitter. For my personal immediate situation, I have DD who's hit 106 HRs in her four year career of HS (34 HRs) on Varsity and Competing only at 18 Gold(72 HRs). Now a frosh in College, Hitting coach suggest going from drop 10 to drop 8. DD prior to switching has 83mph bat speed with consistent 78-81 ball exit speeds, and hit .580 in HS ball, averaged .450+ in 18 Gold for four years again with significant power and high average and a 1/10 AB to K ratio and a 1/5 AB to HR ratio. DD hit 5 balls over 300 feet in last year during both HS and Travel games with the average HRs traveling 260-280 and serious bombs 300+. Is this the type of hitter that would benefit from 2 ounces added? I see potential reasons to do this but seeing DD doing things only handful across the country are doing and knowing she'll be competing against lots of Power 5 pitchers(SEC/ACC...) and her conference has several top 50 pitchers nationally. As a dad, I really haven't been involved in my DDs decisions on the "how" for a couple years as she owns her game and has benefited from the GREATs out here on OFC and across the country for years to understand how to build / manage her skills, but this one is interesting, as my personal opinion is that stepping up into HIGH END college Softball, I personally would be much more focused on Barrel Control then adding weight/force to a kid already crushing balls long enough to leave MLB fences. Am I missing something, or should DD be on guard to not messing with barrel control for sake of small, unneeded added force? Also, don't want to risk being perceived as un-coach-able or know it all.
