Why are young players taught to hit ground balls, when 80%of the time groundballs are outs?
Do you hear coaches telling your son or daughter to keep their back elbow up and to not dip their back shoulder?
At The Hitting Connection we can answer these questions and more, solve the hitting puzzle for your player, and make hitting both fun and productive!
The Hitting Connection Program Includes:
A pre-program evaluation
Guaranteed improvement in the areas of:
Lower body mechanics and the impact they have on the swing

Rotational Hitting Methodology:
The core movements involved with rotational hitting are absolutes. To become a great hitter you must realize that these core movements are indisputable facts and commit to learning and applying them.
1. Hips Lead the Hands
2. Get on Plane
3. Stay Inside the Ball
The drills stressed at The Hitting Connection are designed to build muscle memory and reinforce the lower body's purpose in hitting. Additionally, all hitters must learn the key upper body movements that make it possible to get the bat on plane with the pitch as quickly as possible. The drills taught ingrain into the swing the core concepts of rotational hitting. Review your hitter's positions throughout the swing and see if it looks like the examples below. If it doesn't give us a call for an evaluation to find out why not!
The Mental Approach:
After mastering the mechanics of rotational hitting, the hitter can begin to work on mastering the mental approach required to gain advantages when at the plate. Hitting is a constantly changing environment and every hitter must know their own strengths and weaknesses. However, knowing yours, but not the pitcher's strengths and weaknesses will only prepare you 50% to compete. Remember it isn't the will to win, but the will to prepare to win!
