Ive tried to switch things up a bit, in the feild just meesing around, But I always seem to lose any accuracy I had. And I find it really difficult to play a tourny with a diff style ive been practicing. I feel like Ill just throw any chance I had of cashing out the window.

You get it done on grit and determination. You're like Seabiscuit, including the injuries they should have shot you for. :P

Batting = forehand, tennis backhand = backhand?

I disagree. The leading arm is much more similar to a disc backhand than the trailing arm is to a disc forehand. It is backwards really, but the mechanics are similar to me. Tennis backhand is also similar I agree. Tennis forehand is very similar to a disc forehand to me though, right?

edit:
I guess when I think about it, batting works to illustrate the mechanics for both forehand and backhand really. Seems like baseball throwing is closer to a forehand though.

more like a thumber or tommy would be similar to a throw into the infield from centerfield. hence why my shoulder is torn to crap and i cant do those anymore too. im limited to backhand and need to live with that

Thanks, MDR lol. Freburg and I both don't take run ups and transfer weight well. Usually a slower approach. I just don't get that much wrist into my backhand and torque my body.

This and looking at lot's of footage lately: releasing too early. My hit is too soon on the drives. Biggest goal this year is to correct my hit point.
