Actually you didn't prove me wrong - I made no reference to the phrase early at all and was merely pointing out that your understanding of the term "hitting late" is likely not how it would be used by a coach (hence your disagreement with 5263).
oh, and you brought up the hitting in front issue and confused it with taking the ball on the rise/early - which I had already explained to you earlier was not the same thing thing (as one can hit the ball on the drop and still make contact in front)!
