Former professional pitcher and college baseball coach, ERNIE PETERMAN invited me to Altoona PA to work with his baseball group. What Ernie’s group needed to change the most about their hitting was their “point of view”. Stop trying to SMASH the ball and start to OUT SEE the BALL! How does one teach this concept? Well.., it begins with accepting the idea that hitting is an EYE to HAND Coordination…(the eye is controlling the hand.)
Next, we worked on diffusing the pitcher’s weapons, namely: 1. TIMING 2. SPACE Throwing from a FULL Pitcher’s windup, from about 50 feet away, we taught the group how to become more sensitive to hitting timing and hitting spatial alertness. Teaching the group how to use the pitcher’s common denominator and to TIME their vision at the start of the race, helped them to become more accurate with deciphering pitches and the space the pitches would move into.
Lastly, we improved the group’s swing mechanics by way of manipulating how the hitters would decelerate the bat. After we did this, the group demonstrated more controlled, structured, and organized swings. Your son is ready too. Your son, your team… is ready to learn how to master hitting timing and hitting spatial alertness.
