Absolutely incredible. Son loves this tee and hitting instructor enjoys it when we bring it to lessons. I would recommend for anyone who is serious about teaching their child to be a great hitter. Easy to set up and use. Holds ball firmly and designed very well.

My son loves this thing! I bought the cheapest version.. but him hitting alot of reps without having to bend down and put a ball on each time.. his work outs are twice as fast eliminating the baseball on tee.. by the way his BA is .440 as a sophomore at varsity. Last year struggled with a .150 at JV. So I recommend this for all baseball and softball players.

Rope bat has been an excellent addition to our baseball team. It has helped with waiting on the pitch and hitting with power through the ball. It has helped several players increase their hand speed also.

Details: On Amazon in 2017, The UGLY Truth About Hitting Ground Balls is ranked #39 in the "Coaching Baseball" category. The UGLY Truth About Hitting Ground-Balls: How To Choose Baseball Hitting Drills For Kids book is to guide coaches in picking “effective” drills to help kids get the ball in the air with authority.  In other words, this book will teach you HOW TO fish.

"If you're 10 years old and your coach tells you to get on top of the ball...tell him NO." - Josh Donaldson, 2015 AL MVP, 3-Time All-Star, Toronto Blue Jays

"I do have a little bit of lift to my swing. Everybody swings different. When I get my best swing off, it's a line drive or it's in the air. If it's on the ground, it's not my best swing." - Nolan Arenado, 2-Time All-Star, Colorado Rockies

Primarily Teaching Baseball Hitting Drills For Kids To Hit Ground Balls Is Idiotic & DOES NOT Make Sense

The objective of this book is to guide coaches in picking “effective” drills to help kids get the ball in the air with authority. In other words, this book will teach you HOW TO fish. 

This book addresses the following objectives coming from pro ground-ball hitting coaches:

  • How many games they've won with grounders,
  • How fielding percentage is way lower than fly-balls,
  • That it's much easier to catch a fly ball,
  • How great outfielders track fly balls,
  • How more can go wrong with the defense keeping the ball on the ground (can’t get a bad hop in the air!),
  • If their team hit more grounders, then they'd score more runs,
  • How some of the most winningest coaches in college baseball history, Gordie Gillespie and Augie Garrido as examples, stress keeping the ball on the ground to their hitters,
  • How you HAVE TO TEACH a 5'6", 135-pound High School hitter to hit the ball on the ground because his batted ball distance maxes out at 250-feet! And,
  • How even pro coaches and "great hitting instructors" never promote hitting fly-balls.

By the end of this ground-ball RANT, you’ll either be convinced getting the ball in the air is the most effective way to score runs (line drives are balls in the air by the way), OR you’re being willfully ignorant, in which case, there’s NO hope for you...yet. What I do know for sure is, right now, you’ll continue to get beat on the ball field.

DO NOT read this book if you believe great hitters cannot be made, and are just born.

ENJOY!

My son and I researched pitching machines together on the internet for several months, considering the pros, cons, reviews, cost, and features. We ultimately decided to purchase a MaxBP pitching machine. When it arrived, and we began using it, it far exceeded our expectations.
