It’s that time again, Game Changers – time for brand new #Tashatips to work on in between WCWS games! As you might recall, we’re in the middle of our May series of incorporating new, helpful drills into your hitting progression.

If you’re the kind of person whose legs stay rooted while your torso and arms make the magic happen – or if you have trouble with balance – the Flamingo Drill is for you!
