Default What adjustments did you have to make to play with fences?

In Westchester we basically have nothing but open fields (except for Somers). When you first went to play in tournaments or even went to a league with fences, did you have to make adjustments?

One thing I did is keep my hands up high so that I come down through the ball. This makes me cut the ball a lot but it also cuts down on popups.

The other thing I did is when trying for the 6 hole or the 4 hole, I used to try to hit a line drive about 10 feet high through the hole. This works well on open fields because the OF's play me deep enough that even if I get under it a bit, they won't get it.

When I do that on fenced fields now, I prefer to hit the ball so it lands between the 3B and the SS but I want it just parallel to the 3B's feet (basically landing on the baseline from 2B to 3B).

What this does is give me some room to play. If I top it a bit, it's a hard grounder through the hole. If I get under it a bit, I still have some margin for error before I hit one that carries out to the LF.

The downside is that when you play with a dead ball especially with the deeper NSA bases, the 3B has a much better shot to cut that ball off unless you hit it on the screws. NSA and dead ball tournies in general favor hitters who loop it over the IF as opposed to ones who cut it through the IF holes.
