I am not a big believer in training tools to teach kids the “art of hitting”, but the Insider Bat is a great tool for teaching younger and older players about keeping their hands inside the ball! I tried it with one of my players, Nino Leyja from last year’s State Championship team (and who was drafted by Oakland). He fell in love with how it made him stay through the baseball. He told me to get him one ASAP!
It makes a player really understand about gaining ground through the baseball with their hands and not with their body – and also to stay back!
You get a quick response from using the bat after you hold a baseball in front of them and tell them to get to contact! Every lesson that I have used the Insider Bat with are so surprised that their hands are in the right spot at contact every time. Great job with what you have designed!
