Here's an effective strategy for neutralizing your opposing hitter:
Since 95% of all hitters hit mostly angle, assume that your opposing hitter will hit line ... until they prove differently. Set up your block to take away the angle and stay there until they hit a line shot.
If they finally do hit line, DON'T automatically change your blocking stance. Instead, assume that line shot was an accident, caused by a poorly contacted ball. Only if they hit line a 2nd time in a fairly short time period will you adjust your block to begin guarding the line.
