This young hitter has a solid approach…he stays sideways to the ball with his back foot sideways to control his posture and hip position during the timing phase…all around my hopes are with him to become the winner he was meant to be as he develops.
John Cresto is working on his Kinesthetic (learning by doing) feel for contact through a rehearsal that’s formulating a distance from release to contact as well as giving him the feeling for how he wants to hit the ball. I may be there teaching him, but he’s really learning by doing to find a feel […]
One of the best young shortstops to come out of college baseball and he’s prepared to play pro ball. He was drafted out of high school but opted to go to UCR where he excelled at SS and 2B. Eddie will find a way to become an impact player in pro baseball.
DISCIPLINE is what I like to call the timekeeper who’s ever vigilant and is in charge of adjusting the time so that it’s always precisely on atomic time. This discipline is called “ON TIME AND BUYING TIME”. This discipline is a movement ability that allows you to get further into your legs when the […]
In GAMES…you do NOT “go back first before you go forward”. If you got caught going back at the pitchers release, which is the beginning of the hitters timing phase, you’d get blown away or seriously strung out…it’s simply too much movement and you wouldn’t be taking inertia into consideration. You have to be “Riding […]
I’m very proud of how hard Nick has worked over the years. We got together to tighten up his game before spring training 2012. He went on and had a banner season. I knew he was ready to make the big league team this 2013 season. When we worked out together before spring training this […]
Every MPH taken off a pitch is at least a foot of travel. Sometimes you’re looking for a FB out over the plate at 91mph and the pitcher throws you a “dead fish” at 89mph – you have to “Buy Time” to stay on and through the ball.
Nick rallied this season with the Fresno Giants (Grizzlies). The SS/2B is currently hitting .304 BA – 9 HR – 61 RBI. Worked hard this winter and committed to the plan and hit with conviction. He helped me come up with some great terminology after being exposed to the Ride n’ Stride…He said “I feel […]
As Tyler’s hitting coach on the 2010 Potomac Nationals (High A team), arguably he made the best comeback I’ve ever seen. Tyler had a rough start, hitting .195 and about 8 HR’s with 6 weeks to go. Tyler always had a great swing but his timing was vulnerable, and he was getting strung out on […]
