have you you adjusted your initial stance, backswing and delivery from the (male) "norm" to accommodate a woman's proportionately larger hips? if so, how? if not, how do you manage?

at the line, i naturally position myself at an angle, left side of body forward, right side back. this allows me (a right-hander) a straighter backswing and release. from what i can see on TV, some pwba women appear to do the same thing.

but my male coach insists i stand "straight", both sides of the body in line. this forces me to arc the ball -- the problem he's trying to prevent.

i think he just doesn't get it. your thoughts?
