The concept of online hitting lessons seems a little complicated at first. It is natural to wonder how can doing hitting lessons online really work?
You might be thinking, “Why don’t we just go and take some lessons from a local pro?”
This is a good idea if you have someone qualified to coach you with the background to teach pro style hitting. Unfortunately, there are not always really good qualified pro baseball instructors available close to your area.
If you are lucky to have a qualified instructor close to your house then you should take advantage of their services.
If you don’t have this option close to you then you should take a look at how I can help you by working together with simple technology that you have right now to bring us together for baseball training online.
Analyzing swing mechanics:
Using slow motion video with mark-ups on screen and audio voice over is a very valuable tool. The instructor can see things in video that we may miss or overlook with the naked eye.
Plus, the player feedback is enormously useful to develop a specially tailored plan for each individual player.
The value of online hitting lessons is the speed in which we can do video analysis and see results in a short period of time.
Take a Look at Your Swing
First, we take a peek under the hood and watch your swing. I look for the good stuff and then we start working to polish up some things that will help to increase power, and hitting ability.
I start with an evaluation session to kind of size up where we are and then start planning to where we want to go next.
Keep the Plan Simple
After we identify the areas that need work we will start taking care of each glitch by talking you through the problems and correcting them by drills you can use on your own.
Mechanics can get really complicated and be bit too much to think about if we overload you with too much at once.
We don’t want to get too scientific and bio-mechanical and blow a fuse. Hitting is tough but it’s not rocket science. Keeping things simple to understand is what we will shoot for.
When you send your video, our goal is to get back to you with analyzed video feedback in 1-2 business days and no more than 3 business days.
This gives me time to take a good look, do some on screen mark-ups and record voice over audio feedback.
In addition, I have some recommended drills I will be able to share with you so you will have access to work on your swing at home.
Mental Side of Hitting
Good swing mechanics are important, but I think the mental approach needed to be successful is as important or maybe more important than the swing itself.
You could have a perfect swing and have the wrong mental approach and really, really struggle.
This is why I spend time one-on-one with live calls so I can get in your head the way the Pro’s think and approach the mental side of hitting.
Along with a good swing if we can add the proper mental approach and mindset when you are in the batter’s box---Look Out! This is where we really see significant results ‘Big Time!
SIDE NOTE: I want to help kids be a complete hitter. Mechanics alone are not enough. The right mental approach is as important or maybe more important than mcechanics.
Thank you checking out my online hitting lessons.
I was really fortunate and lucky to work in professional baseball and spend 16 years with the Boston Red Sox organization as a player and minor league manager.
I was blessed to be able to be around some of the greatest players ever to play the game. Players like Ted Williams, Carl Yastrzemski, Jim Rice, Wade Boggs, and plenty of others, too.
It was amazing to watch these men play baseball at such a high level. It was even more amazing to spend time with them as they worked with young prospects in their post-playing instructional days.
Each of these Hall of Fame players had their own unique style and look. At the same time, many of the qualities that made them fantastic overlapped into all of them.
Watching and learning from these great players I was able to weld my own teaching approach to include the features that made these guys great.
