"Hey Ted, I just took a quick look at you profile and saw a couple of references to John Wooden, which tells me, you my kinda guy. If you haven't already, please check out these books, The Talent Code: Greatness Isn't Born. It's Grown.…"

"Well, that is an article from Jon Davis. So it squares perfectly with me. IMHO, as far as a baseball expert on overload - underload training, he is the guy. Like I said earlier, he is a very modest and approachable person. And as I said earlier, I…"

"Hi, My son uses this bat and it works as advertised. Basically it is a much heavier bat, however the weight is distributed evenly vs a heavier regular bat (or donut) which to some, can feel very (too) end loaded and can ruin/modify swing…"

"From a scientific standpoint, I do not see what the balanced nature has to do with how well it works ones hands. If you want to maximize the amount your hands get worked, you have to put the bat into the fingers. The Stacked Handle Bat is the only…"

Anybody used this bat before?

Camwood Hands-n-Speed Weighted Training Bat  Saw it at HittingWorld.comHere is the link to the page. Any thoughts? The second video form the Head coach at OK St. is interesting. My son's high hit nearly 20 HR last year and hit a grand total of 4 this year. BBCOR has changed the game, so we have to adjust right. Was wondering if anybody has used it and had any positives or negatives.See More

No, nothing at all right now. We have some in Washington, Ohio and Arizona. We have just started to expand. That is why I am looking for people.

I am like you. I don't have a playing resume. Just because you are a good player doesn't mean you can't coach or instruct. You do need a longer cage. We work out of a 60 foot. It takes $1500 to get you trained and a machine to you. We have a license fee of $150 a month. Lesson costs depends on what the market can bear. Usually from 30 to 40 per half hour session. You can do two kids at once which go from 20 to 30 dollars per session. The results are outstanding. Kids see dramatic improvement after two or three lessons. Pro players see improvement the same day. Let me know what you think.

Who is your favorite hitter and why?
Sad to say this because he is a St. Louis Cardinal, but mechanically Albert Pujols is an awesome hitter.
