In the Hitting Made Simple Mechanics Course we will give you a detailed look at what it takes to create a high level swing. Our hope is that you find this information useful, but that you also keep in mind that mechanics are just one of the Seven Elements of Hitting. Working to improve your swing is important, but don’t forget to work on the other elements as well!

Improving your swing mechanics will help you…

  • Hit more line drives
  • Hit more pitches on the barrel of the bat
  • Unlock more of your body’s natural power
  • Improve your timing
  • Improve your adjustability
