Do any of you have experience with 8 year old baseball? Where we live it is the first year that kids pitch. While some of the pitchers are decent they aren`t too accurate and my son has gotten hit a few times (just like all of the other kids). The problem is that between getting hit and his belief that swinging and missing is terrible he doesn`t swing at all. When a good pitch actually comes his way he jumps thinking he`s going to get hit. When he goes to practice he can hit them into the outfield but in the games he`s scared. I was a swimmer so I don`t know what to tell him about baseball! Any ideas what to tell him that will make him feel more comfortable and start swinging again?
