Hitting clinics
I am wondering if there are any good softball hitting clinics in the southwest.

Bill Gateley did quie a few last few seasons. I know he does some one on one lessons with our group and other at times. His number is 480-241-3717
Most players in Az know him, aka 'homerun Bill'

Thanks, much appreciated. As I am new to the forum, I have seen the name of "Homerun" Bill numerous times, didn't know they were one in the same.

I took some lessons from Bill in September. It had been awhile since I played and the swing was a little off. Must say I was very impressed with his innovative approach to adjust a new swing to an old body. And since the fee was a donation to his daughters school field trip of $10.00 it was well worth it. Do note that my hitting has improved from horrible to somewhat poor but the lessons where great.

Hey, that sounds great. Just an ounce of improvement for me would be worth it. The only problem is I need lots of ounces to get my swing right. I have seen many instructional DVDs that are out there, and I have gotten a lot from them, but I feel now is the time for some personal help. I am wondering just what city he is located in. Sounds like AZ. for the state. I am in SW Utah. Thanks for the info. Much appreciated.

I think Bill is working on a hitting dvd for spring. Based on my time around Bill on the field I am sure this dvd should be very good. I am not 100% on this so I hope not throwing him under the bus.
