Wow, Baseball Season is almost upon us and kids are seeing visions of the perfect swing and the baseball flying over the fence for a homerun. A HOMERUN may be in the foreseeable future if the baseball players are training with the Donik Sports Junior Hit N Stick Training Aid . My son is on his way to next league and the last two seasons my husband who has been a coach for the last 8 years of little league baseball had helped my son improve his swing and actually hit some home runs the last 2 years. TheDonik Sports Junior Hit N Stick Training Aidhelped my husband teach our son and the rest of the team the proper techniques of the perfect swing.
TheDonik Sports Junior Hit N Stick Training Aid is quite simply a must have for coaching baseball at any level really. It is very simple to use and it gets results. It is a lot like a baseball on the hitting end. It has an impact resistant type of plastic that is a very visible yellow. It also comes in red. The hitting end is attached to a long flexible shaft made of a shock stick fiberglass compound. This is then connected to an easy grip handle that is held by a coach. It is a comfortable type handle and has a Velcro piece to put around your wrist so if you let go of it no one gets hurt. You might think to yourself there is a kid at the other end of this stick with a baseball bat swinging full boar while I am holding onto the other end. No worries, it doesnt hurt and that is coming from a team mom that has had to hold onto the Hit N Stick a time or two. The Donik Sports Junior Hit N Stick Training Aid is safe, controllable, and it is a non threatening device that has proven to dramatically improve hitting stance, contact, and bat control. With the horizontal type of hitting it gives the player a correct feedback for each swing. They can actually tell what the swing is dong for them without having to wait for a pitch and feel frustrated when they cant hit that ball. We have seen it all to many times our kids are up to bat at practice and they just cant hit the ball their self-esteem is pretty much gone because they cant seem to place the there bat in the right area to get a good hit if even any hit at all. We as parents try to tell the kids lift your elbow, widen your feet, move up, move back, we have all as parents tried to help our kids what is it that we can do really, We arent coaches most of us. We rely on them to help our kids do their best. Let me say with the Donik Sports Junior Hit N Stick Training Aid we dont have to wait for practice we can hold the end of the Hit N Stick after we go to the Hit N Stick website and make sure are kids are using the proper techniques. Go to http://www.hitnstik.com/demo.html and watch the demo now. They also have a great drill guide that you can download and use.
We have had nothing but results with our Hit N Stick. My husband actually used it to help drill the kids on my sons baseball team before they went up to bat at our practices, He would help correct the kids in a positive way and the kids could see what they were doing wrong. I cant say enough good things about the Donik Sports Junior Hit N Stick Training Aid. my son hit a few good home runs this last baseball season and had 22 RBIs. Now, that is what I call improvement.
