The last days of CheckSwing (Aug 22 shut down)

CheckSwing Friends-After over 11 years I am sad to announce that CheckSwing is shutting down. The last day of operation for CS will be August 22, 2019. It's been an amazing run for this baseball network. Nearly 10,000 baseball players, coaches, parents, and umpires joined us over the years to connect, share knowledge and help one another advance in the game.

Bill, thanks for doing this group.... I really like the format and the information you provide here

Thank You Bill

Wish I had known about this site sooner as I am heavily entrenched in baseball and related ventures. Coming soon a revolutionary throwing training system I’ve got about 30 years of study into. What it teaches and how I came to discover it is only half of the picture because this information and device refines the highest level MLB player or can establish a young kid in minutes. I hope to debut it here.

Bill contact me offline if you could.
