Discussion: Softball Academy

Steve has worked with Bret and I and Destiny, on our swing makeover hitting series and system, and I would recommend him highly. He is not just a hall of fame hitter, but has been a teacher and a teaching softbware sales leader for many years. His academy will be well organized, sound mechanically and I am sure a great learning experience for any serious player looking to take part. He is one of the nicest guys in senior softball, has a calm patient manner, will be well organized. Best of luck to Steve and his new venture. bogie and gang. www.sportstechnique.com

Discussion: softball mags senior camp

I haven't been to Team 1 camp, heard it was good. I have been to the softball magazine senior camp and as well as all 11 of their spring training camp as a camper. First class treatment all the way...along with the wide ranging instruction and training from a large group of athletes, lunch every day at the fields and a banquet with a free senior bat and prize package. Very well run. Its all detailed on their website if you wish to view. www.softballmag.com

Discussion: Slide Tube Drills provide Real Swing Refinement and pregame practice Swing Makeover 45

This is almost like a mini lesson, all presented by Bret and the slide tube...Overlays of hitters give reinforcement. Also the evil bp ball on the slide tube gives real feel ball hitting...with the guide rope providing the correct bat path within the oversnap. You can make easily, or purchase off our website. Great way to practice before a game, but overall the concepts of hitting are easily understood. A visit from the "Worlds Most Powerful Hitter".

Discussion: Shoulder Torque and 3 Critical Steps of the Bathead Snap. Swing Makeover #44

Seldom discussed, shoulder torque can be a focus that can help hitters enhance the rotation and body angle. Those who lunge, have injury or back and joint problems, may find the hips maxed out and especially can benefit from the improved body angle and rotational speed. Also we discuss the 3 critical steps needed for a good bat head snap.

Discussion: Swing Makeover #42...The Power Lag, sets up an Explosive Bathead Snap.

edit fixed...ha ive considered it!

One of our most important technical episodes. If we get our hands back and focus on using the hip and shoulder rotation
to stab and drive the hands and knob at an up angle and to the inside, we will develop a powerful lag, which in turn will
set the angle and motion needed to achieve an almost automatic snap. Holding the arms back and the lag just for that last split second, sets up that last split second more of rotation, before the explosive extension of the arms, torque of the wrists that will snap the bat head into the ball. The Slide Tube is shown in detail, and how such a simple piece of equipment can help develop such a complex swing.

Powerful lag makes the snap happen much easier and more consistently. A position all great hitters achieve.

Discussion: who won at the ISA WORLDS in Columbus

Columbus was great that at 60plus we had 3 nice major teams to play, then 2 games in major plus. Wish we had more teams in Lansing...competition would be of great benefit, but not many teams for the long travel.

Discussion: who won at the ISA WORLDS in Columbus

60plus Kinnco played great and destroyed our Pope team. Myself and half the team hit poorly, due in part to Face's tough pitching. They will be another strong 60plus team in vegas. Great fields and well run tourney. Congrats.

Discussion: How Many Knob Cuffs??

We had a swing makeover show on it last year, and on a thread here, someone on SSUSA came on as I recall and said it was legal for SSUSA. I have used 2, one of each hand, the past 5 years in SSUSA regionals and worlds as well as local ASA play, and never had it questioned by an ump.

Discussion: Larry Carter Signature Senior Bat Review and Interview

DeMarini has come out with an excellent midload senior bat that has top end peformance and so far has very good durability. Its namesake is Larry Carter...and this also contains a short interview and swings from the great Larry Carter. Its the best DeMarini bat to come out in my opinion, in the last few years for most rec guys who don't want an overwhelming endload. Alot of great senior bats out there, and this one is one of the best.

Discussion: Re-Learning Hip Rotation, Cures Early Season Slump. Swing Makeover #39

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H_hhWczk_g0

Many athletes need to put most of the mental focus on hip rotation, in order to get the hips to lead the swing. This creates good tempo, timing, body angle, weight transfer and finally explosion. Hip rotation is explained with a few simple drills to physically learn to let the hips lead the swing. www.sportstechnique.com Softball Hitting Swing Makeover #39

Discussion: Video on the 2015 Senior Demarini One El

Lefty, yeah, while most advanced players start where they want, they always end up with hands pulled back as the front foot hits. For many, to start with hands back helps simplify this. Im trying to come back from major back surgery and it is helping me get hands back more..it was a struggle trying to be consistent when I couldnt rotate well but now taking time to relearn how to use hips, its a slow process..I tip my hat to those with joint replacements or permanent injuries who learn to adjust so well.
