Who is your favorite hitter and why?
Babe Ruth...think about it, He hit like over 350 when the ball was dead, his bat weighed fifty five ounces, and the parks were bigger, and he was half in the tank part of the time.
Who is your favorite pitcher and why?
I think basically Babe Ruth again, just because that is so darned rare and I'm a hitting guy in my heart, and of course my son because I'm so biased.
More About Me:
I am a professional batting instructor for the last sixteen years, mainly for youth league kids and girls fast pitch softball. I have instructed several college and adult leagure batters as well. It's been an incredible journey having the opportunity to conduct over 60,000 batting lessons! I teach the most modern techniques of compact rotational hitting that are now the standard at all major colleges. I have written two published books on hitting, "Baseball's Hitting Secrets" and a follow up second edition new for 2009. I have two batting cages in my backyard ( for hardball and fastpitch) and own six different pitching machines. I have two adult sons who are presently playing adult ball who were perennial all stars, one who was offensive mvp for his high school,and played a bit of college ball. Several of my students have gone on to scholarships">scholarships">scholarships">scholarships in college.

Hi Ted,


Just wanted to say thank you so much for attending Scott's practice this weekend.  It really means alot to us!!!  Scott is so excited and looks forward to learning how to hit and throw like his uncle Brett.

Hi Ted,


I think it's a great idea to post a new discussion in the youth coaches group.  I do think that the lack of activity is due more to the time of year than anything else.  Also, in some cases, coaches post in the general forum instead of within a group forum.  The group is the way to go.


What topic are you planning on posting on?

Glad to see you back. Hope all is well.

After reading one of your posts I feel like a prematurely judged your philosphy based upon others things I saw you write. It seems that we have many of the same ideas of the proper swing. I guess I focused on your comment of the level swing and rotation and was a bit picky. After reading what you wrote about the "College Swing" I feel that we are both on the same page. You should stop referring to it as the college swing though and just start telling everyone it is THE RIGHT SWING :-). Let's talk some hitting sometime.

Hey Ted, There's been quite a bit of activity lately on some of the hitting discussions. I'd love to hear your take on some of the recent comments. Hope all is well!

I've been reading your book and enjoying it. Lots of things to try with the kids in the spring!

Yeah, i guess we were bleeding doubles, even Pocasingle was poking doubles, all around great effort by the offense.
