Stance just basically means how you are going to stand when you hit. And there are several ways that you can do it. And people have many different stances; like if you watch a major league game you'll see really there are few people that stand exactly the same. But what I'm just going to show you is a basic stance that should be able to get you started with the right swing. What you want to do is have your legs about shoulder width apart, to maybe a little bit further than shoulder width apart. This is going to give you good balance; you want to have your knees slightly bent. You want to have the bat like we discussed, in your hands lined up, these knuckles lined up together and you want your hands and the bat slightly behind your back ear. And things you want to avoid are starting with the bat right here, starting with the bat down. What that's going to do is take you longer when you start your swing to get to the ball, and we want to simplify as much as we can right now and make it as easy as we can when you are first starting out and then once you understand that and you want to adjust some things, you want to do what feels natural that is a good idea. But right now this is as basic as you can get and it is as simple as you can get and it's what you are going to want to use to get results when you are first starting out. Just like this, knees slightly bent, hands back behind the ear. Bat angle about seventy, seventy-five degrees so that you have the shortest distance to travel to the baseball.
