....balance issues ... the balance arm ... fall off the shot.... keep it up hes doing well.
Nice video. Slater Jr seems to be well on his way. He might could try using his balance arm, though. At this point he's actually fighting his swing with it instead of helping the swing. You can see a little muscular effort in his balance arm on each throw as the ball swings by his leg going backwards.
If he were to extend it outwards to the side and slightly to the front, I think it would calm his swing down.
Just an old galoot's opinion....
Upon watching a second time, I get the feeling that he wants to extend it but it doesn't weigh enough to actually provide a balancing effect. This might seems silly, but a wrist weight of a pound or two might help him to hold the arm extended, as the ball is pretty heavy for his weight.
