Earlier in the course we mentioned that in order to drive an outside pitch, you must hit it deeper in the hitting zone than an inside pitch. Don’t take this to mean that you now have to have different timing for an inside and outside pitch!

While that is technically true, the difference is small. Instead of thinking about the timing aspect of this, focus visually with your eyes on the points of contact you want for each pitch. 

By maintaining a constant focus on your point of contact in practice, your eyes will get used to delivering the barrel to the right spot for different pitch locations. Your eyes will guide your body to automatically make up the small timing differences for you!
