An interesting look at our first attempts this winter to use ball exit speed testing to see improvements made on line drive exit speed and homeruns. Shows a relationship between distance and mph achieved. Top young pros video'd with ball exit speed meter behind them.

I had the opportunity to go to the TOC a few years ago and it was an absolute blast and very well run. I was a big fan and hope my team will travel again there. bogie

Discussion: Brace Leg Drill balances Rotation and Snap..Swing Makeover #47

Using a conventional tee, one with a no chase tee ball, or evil bp ball on guide rope, these 2 drills will allow you to isolate the final rotation of hips and shoulders before impact, while you drive, extend and snap the bat head thru the ball. Also works tempo of lag and snap. This will help get rotation and snap in sync.

Discussion: Evil Ball on Guide Rope, excellent trainer you can make and use anywhere Swing Makeover #46

No, while we extensively teach rotation of hips and shoulders, we want a lag and snap or tomahawking overnsap, at a level to slight up angle to cut thru the part of the ball you wish to attack. This involves arm extension and wrist torque within the rotation. Swing makeover episodes #41, #33 and #19 extenively discuss and talk about drilling this. Shows are free and accessed in order at www.sportstechnique.com under swing makeover/youtube tab

If you want to get in alot of reps in an easy fashion, this is a great tool. It combines a guiderope which has a bunge on one end, dog clip on another. It has a 44 375 style ball with a half inch hole thru the middle. When set up properly, the guide rope helps you swing at a level to slightly up angle, and if you swing under the rope, you will cut thru the ball with a good snap and the ball will fly to the other end. It gives immediate feedback, because if you golf under the ball, or cleave it too radically, it shows a popup or flyout, and just bounces up and down on the rope. Allows you to train and get dozens of swings daily and there is a variety of drills you can do indoors, at the field or in your yard.

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.
