Is there a "certain" way to bat in fast pitch softball?

Hello all, so after being taught 6 years to raise my elbow to hit they are telling me that is wrong?! I'm suppost to keep my elbow down? I tried it and I cannot do it to save my life. I bat decent with my elbow up. and that is what I am comfortable with. But my coach said that with the elbow up is the "boy" way to do it. I looked it up and watched some versity fast pitch softball, some have their elbow up, some don't. I watched some "drill" videos. Some say you can. Others can't. I need to know because if I HAVE to bat this way I am quitting softball. I love it with a passion. But I refuse to bat like that. Can I get some answers? please?

everyone has their own style, there's no real "certain" way to bat but most people swing with their elbows in. but if its what you're comfortable with and it works then keep them out. your coach just wants to help you and if you really wanted too, you could practice just keeping your elbows in
