Cant hit the outside pitch

My kid plays baseball, he is 12 and is very powerful, the thing is he pulls the ball all times and has problems with the outside pitch to the point that is the only pitch thrown to him all the time. He went from a .429 to a .130 after the other teams discovered his weakness. I tried to teach him to wait a little bit longer on the outside pitch but with no luck. What drills or ideas we could use?

I like to use a batting practice point game. During batting practice in the cages or on the field give the hitters more points when they hit the ball to CF and the opposite field. They get reinforced for hitting the ball to all fields but they do it within a competition so they don't realize what you are doing.

Thank you
