Total control ball and hitting jacket system

Many travel softball and baseball teams love the total control balls because they are easy to use and help improve a hitter’s bat swing. One advantage of using the total control balls, no batting cage available, no problem. All that a batter needs for some quality BP), a bit of practice field, a hitting T, or someone to soft toss the weighted balls, batter up, hitting practice is on.

The biggest advantage to using total control balls is the weight. The added wait of these durable weighted balls use as a training aid help both baseball and softball hitters improve their bat swing. By training, our hitter's to swing all the way through a ball, thereby increasing hitting power, bat-speed, and a hitter's confidence.

Hitting jacket system

Forget that old donut, use the hitting jacket system, it’s the better option.

Forget about using that old school one size fits all one trick donuts, which is to say, is only good for one thing really. Batters using to warm up hand, arm, back and leg muscles while loosening up in the on deck circle.

The better option here, right off the bat the hitting jacket system provides the hitter with 3-weight options.

At 9-ounces, the lightest blue hitting jacket is great for 8-U travel and recreation league players.

The blue hitting jacket not only works great as an on deck warm up aid, unlike the old school donuts. The hitting jacket works great on any hitter’s bat while hitting in the cage, soft toss, and hitting T workouts.

Additionally, the hitting jacket adds a new dimension to hitting in the cage and off the hitting T.

Adding weight to the handle of a bat just below the barrel of a hitter’s favorite bat is best, providing the added benefit of not adding weight to the end of the bat. Like weighted bat sleeves that create many more problems than they solve do. Messing up a batter’s hitting mechanics. Creating bad habits like a hitter cast her / his hands, adversely affecting reaction time, bat speed, and ball crushing power.

The hitting jacket system helps softball and baseball hitters develop good mechanics, keep hands inside the ball, throw the bat and  power through the ball, and promote good follow through.
