At the beginning of the little league baseball season of 2009, the idea for the InsiderBat was born.
One of the most asked questions we get is, “How did you come up with the idea?” In an effort to help my 7-year-old coach pitch team understand the proper hitting mechanics, I began to explore different ways to teach the young hitters proper hand path and the concept of staying “inside the ball.” I made various prototypes and worked after hours until I was able to come up with a a simple version of what is now the insiderbat. As the season continued, and the bat was taken to practices, games and tournaments, local coaches began to ask about the strange, new tool that my team was seen using. Coaches wanted to know where they could get one and often asked to borrow ours.
In 2010, my wife and I decided to take a giant leap of faith and we went into production full-time. Since then, we have been very fortunate getting the insiderbat into the hands of some the the best coaches, players, and trainers in the game. The insiderbat has quickly become a favorite training tool due to its simple, yet effective, way of teaching the proper hitting mechanics.
The insiderbat Company is comprised of me and my wife, Karri. Our two boys are involved in the family business and often “pack bats” for shipping.
Thank you for stopping by and remember to stay inside the game!
