The Insider Bat

The Insider Bat

"Muscle memory" is a term used to describe a learned movement, pattern or habit. By performing the same movement pattern repeatedly, more effective nerve/muscle connections are made. These connections that are made repeat more effectively each time used. After developing muscle memory, the new action is automatic and will be performed without conscious thought.

If used properly, the Insider Bat will assist in creating positive muscle memory for a fundamentally correct swing. In addition the Insider Bat will:

  • Emphasize palm up/palm down hand positioning before, during and after contact with the ball
  • Instant feedback for batter and coach
  • Trains hitter not to roll wrists or sweep (cast) before or during contact with ball
  • Promotes proper grip of bat
  • Emphasizes “staying inside the ball” before and during contact
  • Promotes proper hip rotation during swing
  • Can be used anywhere, anytime, indoors or outdoors
  • Forces hands in front of bat head during swing
  • Promotes tucking of back elbow into “slot”
  • Great for Pre-game drills or “on deck” reinforcement tool
  • Excellent when used as one arm drills

Designed for the beginner as well as seasoned pro. A hitter, regardless of age or ability level, does not necessarily need to know the complicated "physics" of a swing. He or she does not need to know why their hands should be palm up / palm down at contact, why they should not cast (sweep) the bat, etc. They simply need to swing the bat correctly.

That is why the Insider Bat was developed.

The Hands Inside Trainer

The Hands Inside Trainer

The goal of the Hands Inside Trainer is to promote proper muscle memory by attacking the inside part of the ball with proper hand path during the swing.

Constructed of durable 85 durometer urethana, the H.I.T. will NOT rot, break, or crack over time.

The "stem" of the H.I.T. is made of solid urethane, and the thinner "j" is flexible enough to not damage expensive bats, but rigid enough to retain it's "memory" after being struck.

Can be used with For right or left handed hitters.

Beginners should start with H.I.T. at 3 o'clock. More advanced hitters move H.I.T. to 4 or 5 o'clock position.

When used correctly, at contact hands in front of bat head, palm up/palm down, hands in front of bathead (bat lag). When used incorrectly, or casting, bat head will hit the "j" before ball is struck.

Proper setup is important when using the H.I.T. Too far from plate and hitter can 'cast' and not hit the "j" portion of H.I.T.

Though the H.I.T. fits most standard rubber tees well, if needed tape can be added to create a tighter fit.

Soft Hit Softballs

The Hands Inside Trainer

The Soft HIT practice softballs are used both indoors and outdoors so training can happen year-round, in any weather, on the field, in the yard, in the garage or basement, or in the gym.

The softballs are 12" in circumference and come in the color yellow. They weigh approximately 2 ounces. The raised red laces are an important feature for baseball and softball players; the laces permit pitchers to throw change-ups and breaking balls effectively and hitters the ability to see ball rotation — providing the opportunity to recognize pitch type.

The Soft HIT practice softballs are perfect for soft toss, tee work, live pitching, machine pitching, and fielding drills. Our practice softballs don’t break, they don't hurt, and they don’t break things they hit!


  • Safe - these balls do not hurt like plastic or hard balls; so no need for L-screens
  • They will not dent cars, break scoreboards, or damage bats
  • Extremely durable – hit them thousands of times
  • Will give instant feedback to hitters
  • Easy for pitchers to throw and batters to recognize breaking balls
  • Fun to use
  • Limited flight
  • Usable in pitching machines

The Cannonball

The Cannonball The Cannonball is such a simple way of warming up, strengthening, and toning the arm, that it's unbelievable. You'll find this out the first time you use it! When warming up with the Cannonball, you only want to throw it easy about 10 to 15 tosses, and then throw a regular ball easy about 3 to 4 tosses, then gradually pick up the speed another 10 tosses, or until you feel comfortable.

Another way of strengthening is to use it on non-game days, by throwing it against a solid wall such as brick or concrete, and the ball will bounce back to you, so you can practice ground ball drills. On non-game days you can throw the ball until your arm gets tired (do not over do it, or throw the ball hard).

The Cannonball weighs 1 pound and is composed of solid rubber. It's available in four (4) colors: red, blue, yellow, and orange.

"I use the cannonball with all my students to increase their speed and spins. It works great."
