Unlocking Your Potential at the Plate: Mastering the Three Key Skills of Hitting

Youth baseball and softball experts have identified the three fundamental skills that must be mastered for a hitter to achieve their potential: Pitch Recognition, Swing Timing, and Biomechanics. 1. Pitch Recognition: Swing at the right pitch A hitter typically has just 150 milliseconds to decide whether to swing at a pitch. This doesn’t allow for conscious, rational decision-making. Instead, the hitter must make an instinctive decision guided by the brain’s subcortical structures. Try these tools to improve your child’s instinctive


Understanding the WIN Assessment Scoring System

The WIN Assessment Scoring System is a thorough scoring method that connects scientific principles with familiar baseball/softball scouting terms. It assesses a player’s hitting abilities by examining several key factors: impulse control, decision-making, visual discrimination, pattern recognition, motor planning, motor coordination, and neuromuscular ability. These factors are then correlated with a range of batting performance metrics, including swing decision, reaction time, on time rate by pitch types and location, early vs. late swings, hard hit rate, chase rate, plate discipline, and power metrics such as bat speed. Scores Scores are based on the percentile all hitter falls into for each

Pitch Tunneling: How hitters can train to overcome it

Over the last few years, you’ve likely heard the term “Pitch Tunneling” during a broadcast, or seen it mentioned online. The concept itself isn’t new, and is something that great pitchers like Greg Maddux instinctively understood before it had a name. Developments in high-speed cameras, virtual reality, big data, and 3D modeling, have made it possible to visualize pitch tunneling (from the perspectives of the pitcher and hitter), and understand its effects. In 2017, after more than two years of work, Baseball Prospectus unveiled their research on what they termed pitch tunneling, and introduced it to the greater baseball community.

Elite Baseball Training: How VR transfers to the batter’s box

Since baseball began, undoubtedly its most difficult training challenge has been replicating in-game pitching conditions for hitters to practice against. Pitching is a scarce resource that is too valuable to waste on batting practice. Consequently, as players we practice against coaches throwing 50% of game speed, take “simulated” at-bats against teammates in scrimmages, and try to stay fresh at local batting cages. All the while doing this, we hope that it will transfer to helping us in actual game environments. While some of us may look great at our local batting cages, or against our coach’s lazily tossed batting practice,
