The Final Frontier In Hitting

Twenty years of research, clinical studies and fieldwork have guided us in establishingManny Ramirez: Building The Complete Hitter
the following instructional guidelines for our Visual Mechanics training. Learn how to improve pitch recognition and visual processing time at any age:

  • Seeing the location and trajectory of the baseball is the most important component of hitting.
  • Visual routes and gaze patterns prior to ball release are unique to all hitters.
  • Most mechanical problems in the swing are caused by visual misinformation.
  • Hitting drills with no visual challenge is ineffective training.
  • Strike zone knowledge and pitch recognition are crucial for advanced hitting skills.
