Hitting Tips -
that will make you a Great Hitter
If you want good hitting tips because it stinks when you or your kid(s) strike out or you're not hitting well, then I want to be your Hitting Coach who can show you how to hit great, how to not strikeout and how to hit it harder than you ever have before.
You want to hit homeruns or at least to hit the ball out of the infield, but you're finding that you can't fix it and as much as they try, neither can your coaches.

I want to let you in on a little secret -- most coaches can probably see your problem, but they don't know how to correct your problem. They mean well, many of them have played baseball or softball, in fact many of them can even spot exactly what you're doing wrong. The KEY -- is to get hitting tips that will help you have a perfect swing so that you can hit the ball hard. A swing that will make you not fear missing the ball.
It's a simple process of
1) finding a coach with good credentials and training that you can see to learn the proper hitting techniques. Someone who can monitor your progess and give you training and encouragement.
2) practicing the hitting tips and hitting techniques that they teach you until your swing is now a perfect swing.
