Personal Testimonies from Swing Smarter Readers...
(Yonkers, NY )
Joey, Im glad you met up with Chas pippit. I think the guys right on with his hitting ideas. Since you stopped teaching to swinging down through the ball, and match the plane of the pitch early in the swing; YOU are right on also. The way Chas Pippitt teaches to load with hips and scap, and use the big muscles to swing, would even make Ted Williams proud, I think.
I can see the PRohammer would be great. Some time ago when Jim Lefebvre was the hitting coach with the SF Giants, HE had his hitters bat off of a tee with a bat that had a flat sided bat head. He said his players called it the magic bat because it corrected many hitting problems. I can see the prohammer is one up on that. But still comes off the same idea.
I also own a mp30 and can see how that helps to slot the rear elbow and help the hitter to use the strong muscles of the body in the swing.
Instead of just a push with the hands approach.
It's also a good idea that you recommend the sandlot slugger instead of the flimsy pro pitcher good luck with your new website.
Swing Smarter Response:
Wow Jerry, what a glowing testimonial! I appreciate it, and yes I had to swallow my pride when Chas came along and pounded my Down & Through hitting philosophy into the ground. Now, I'm thankful and will NEVER look back.
The hitting aids right now at TheStartingLineupStore.com are great, and I know there's going to be better ones to come along when we get Chas's Hitting Rebellion philosophy out there.
It's hard to find good technique hitting aids promoting solid hybrid rotational principals.
Thank you once again for the kind words and keep spreading the word!
