I'm new here. Thanks for having me. I've read some of the replies, mainly for the purpose of not being redundant and learning. Pardon me if I am.
I saw Charlie Lau referenced earlier. Somewhere in that book Charlie…"

More About Me:
My friend referred me to this site tonight. I am absolutely thrilled to see so much desire to learn. I share that desire.
I read a few posts and decided to join in. I think I can contribute and am sure I can learn somethings.
After a career of coaching, scouting and teaching hitting I decided that we could do more for our hitters. That we could get more out of the athlete and individual. I did over a year of research looking for a solid game changing concept. In 2014 we designed the system. In 2015 we are refining it and in 2016 we will be releasing it.
* This is not a "how to hit" system. It is a cognitive, neurological, permanent change in the player.
The research said the hitters would have one of or all of these responses:
1. The fastball looks slower.
2. The baseball looks bigger.
3. It's easier to make decisions about what to swing at and when to swing.
4. I see rotation better.
5. I see the ball and rotation "out of the pitchers hand". Earlier.
6. It's easier to focus and concentrate.
7. I feel more confident overall.
8. Tracking got a lot easier for me.
One response we didn't expect:
I can see the white in between the red on the laces.
Our observations are:
1. Aggressiveness is up.
2. Contact is up.
3. Exit velocity is up
4. Confidence is up.
5. Focus is up.
6. Production is up.
7. Power is up.
8 Strikeouts are down.
9. Walks are up.
10. Timing is improved.
11. Loud barrel contact is up.
We have put 100 hitters through the system and 99 of them responded the way we expected. Ages 8 - 41.
The process is patent pending and we are "slowing the game down for hitters one pitch at a time," and it's AWESOME!
That's a little about me and how I spend my time. I'm KC and it's my pleasure to be here.
Ps. I found a great of gratification in reading these posts and seeing the need for the direction we went with our system.
* This is not a "how to hit" system. It is a cognitive, neurological, permanent change in the player. :)!
