There's always innovation in baseball. Some tools are useful. Some are not.

What is some baseball stuff that you like?  It can be gear, clothing, gadgets or any kind of training tools.

I'll start.  I like the BackSpin Tee and LineDrive Pro Trainer.  Both are useful hitting tools that I find help players improve.  I'm not connected to these companies in any way.

Please chime in with your recommendations.  This can help many parents, coaches and…

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.
