  • Why most batting aids, even those endorsed by Major Leaguers, don't help you, and most times than not, actually hurt you?

The answers to these questions and more were pulled from a compilation of my 23+ years of baseball service: playing 17 years, including 4 years of Division 1 college baseball at Fresno State, coaching and private instruction (6+ years), popular media I've immersed in including books, DVD's, etc., fitness, Yoga, Martial Arts, and the invaluable 80/20 Principal in which the organization of the site was built upon.

"Okay, how much is this baseball hitting drills resource going to cost me?"

Swing Smarter Cost = NOTHING

We pay for the site through other ads you'll catch scattered here and there. We do NOT promote products, equipment, or other websites without them passing the rigorous Swing Smarter NOT Harder test. Other sites drench their storefront with any and every product in the hopes you'll buy at least one.

We don't want to waste your time, so we ONLY put up quality player-tested ones.

Other baseball hitting websites you've been too, most likely, have annoying sales content right off the bat, giving you tons of hyped promises, which can be very frustrating, salesy, and let me foreshadow the end result, a major disappointment.


The weakness in most Major League or pro player endorsed products is money. Manufacturers pay the players a pretty penny to back poor quality hitting aids (some created by people who know nothing about hitting BTW), in order to cover up a product's weak spots in functionality.
