*Special Hitting Session in your HOMETOWN!
Everyone already knows the key to being an elite hitter is to master your hitting timing and master your spatial-alertness.
Studying your swing mechanics is important and it has its place when you’re trying to develop baseball hitters..but, a major flaw in over-teaching swing mechanics is that you presume, the ball will always hit the bat. Coaches/Players often have this attitude.., “Since the bat is metal…the baseball must be like a magnet, when I swing my bat.., the ball will just go right to my bat.” Just because you have perfect swing mechanics doesn’t mean you’re going to hit the baseball.
So, how does the ball get onto the bat? Well, this is where the concept of “Eye to Hand” Coordination comes into play. With the study of eye-to-hand coordination, it is understood that the EYE is directing the HAND. It is NOT the hand directing the eye. Therefore, the process of getting the ball to land on the bat requires the hitter to TIME his EYE, to accurately get into position, to read rapidly the information about the ball’s speed and the ball’s space and then, quickly send the information back to the brain, where the brain rapidly deciphers the information and then relays the information through the spinal cord to the body’s limbs. If…the brain receives the information about the ball’s speed and space late…your son may experience a swing of desperation, panic, or apprehensiveness. And this is where our innovative hitting system excels.
We teach hitters, based on their natural athletic disposition and their natural hitting model/tempo…, a real repeatable pattern/technique of getting the information about the baseball quickly to the brain. These progressive hitting ideas are often overlooked and undervalued by most hitting coaches. But the good news is this.., we can work face to face with your hitter and teach him how to use these concepts during a LIVE GAME setting. This is the most natural way to teach hitting. Your son is going to love it!

Q: Who’s Dave Kirilloff ..?
A: He’s the researcher/developer of ‘TIMED Hitting Perception’
I Followed The ‘CROWD’ .. 15 years ~
After a career-ending blood clot injury, I was blessed to work inside Pirate Scouting Department. It gave me the chance to learn from some of the best baseball men in the game. Having almost a master’s degree in education and a heart for teaching, I accepted opportunities to coach in college and later opened my own baseball training center. I learned by my experience of working with Professional Players, that it is so much easier to work with pro players than it is to work with the youth level player. Professional Players are obviously better athletes, they can change almost anything you ask them to .. BUT – the younger players, who have a lower skill set, challenged me to find the answers that would make – ALL – hitters better, at every level!
It took me 15 years to – stop trusting in the ‘system’…The ‘way’ everyone else is teaching. During the ’70s and ’80’s my baseball instruction was limited. Like most players, I just had to figure it out. The leading book resources at the time were the “ART OF HITTING .300” and the “SCIENCE OF HITTING”, these hitting books influenced me to worry too much about my mechanics. Instead, I just prayed and practiced and eventually made it on the MLB draft board. It was difficult to put into words -but- I figured out my hitting success rested on my TIMING. After my injury, I got into coaching, I didn’t want to teach something weird, so I just followed what other coaches taught. I put my own flavor to it.
After 15 years of teaching the traditional common way .. I WOKE UP!
I got tired of watching player after player having these mediocre results from getting ‘professional instruction’. Sure – we think some players benefit from the instruction, ..but if we are honest with ourselves, as coaches, AND really ‘watch’ those players, we think, we develop, ..you’ll notice they did IT… Their Way after all! I began to notice, some players just have a KNACK for the game. I had it, and maybe you too. So – what is the KNACK? Good players will tell you “Just keep it simple .. SEE IT .. HIT IT – ” The problem is, that’s ALL they can tell you about the KNACK.
I’ve come to learn, the real KNACK behind the hitting …Is.. ‘TIMED Spatial Awareness”
Our spatial awareness affects our actions…
Learning about the differences in someone’s Athletic D.N.A. and Tempo – helped me to understand how a hitter will individually utilize the GOLDEN NUGGETS of great timing. Good hitters have a KNACK of repeating these Gold Nuggets. What is the Gold Nuggets of great timing? They are Timing the Vision and Timing the Adrenaline.. to the pitcher’s common denominator (not release point).
The WORLD’S GREATEST HITTING FORMULA… – EXPLAINS these GOLDEN NUGGETS and the athletic rules that are needed to repeat ‘good timing’.

Call Me – we can arrange a Hometown Hitting Event and work with your team or organization. Teaching hitters how to become sensitive to their “Timing” and to “Spatial Awareness” maybe one of the hardest elements to teach ballplayers. This is why we limit the size (per session) to 4 to 5 players. During our visit, your players will LEARN what their Hitting Model For Timing is, and create more consistency with launching and lifting balls in the game. They will learn how to make At Bat Adjustments with their TIMING that will ultimately affect their VISION and MECHANICS. The system we teach helps the hitter to learn how to put his attention back to the baseball and NOT be distracted by the fluff of sports psychology OR overwhelmed with mastering their mechanics. (Mechanics can be mastered after they hit the ball -and WHEN- they learn about the Best Hitting Drill EVER.)
