Coach James Rowson speaks about the mental and physical approach to being a good hitter.  The approach begins before you ever get into the batters box, with positive thoughts and the "I am going to hit a line drive back up the middle" mindset.  The approach can change given different situations within the game, but a good understanding of what kind of pitches the pitcher throws and whether or not they are throwing strikes are huge to having success as a hitter.
