Our Hitting Philosophy
The offensive philosophy is based on the Crabbe-ology road map. We break down swing and approach, teaching our players what it takes to be a successful hitter.
Hitters should have the thought they are attacking every pitch. This puts THEM in control of whether to SWING OR NOT.
Hitters should stay balanced through a good load with good rhythm, tempo, controlled head and quiet eyes.
Hitters should understand the concept of weight distribution. Our hitters learn how to use their center of gravity for maximum output. We want free flowing athletes in the batters box.
Putting too much emphasis on hand action doesn’t maximize output.
Hitters will learn how to roll into their "A" swing
The goal is to facilitate awareness of the swing mechanics & approach by:
Developing the proper stance – foundation of swing begins at the legs.
Helping you understand rhythm & tempo - learning the difference.
Managing your load – we all need to get to the same position for the best results to do DAMAGE.
Creating Initiation – proper Sequence of Kinetic Chain .
Establishing a mind/body awareness
