A Glimpse At The Pros



Take a glimpse at what it takes to be a professional ball player and how the CamWood training bat has become a part of their everyday routine.

 

Most baseball fans come to the ballpark 2 hours before game time to watch batting practice. The truth is that the real hitting is done in cages under the stadium about 6 hours prior to the game. This is where they work on honing their skills such as quicker hands, better rotation, and proper weight shift.

A common misconception in baseball is that hitting off a tee is only for beginners – that couldn’t be further from the truth. The fact is that 40% of all major leaguers hitting drills are done off a tee.

Tee work enables ball players to work on all pitch locations and get their mechanics flawless.

Watch Florida Marlins hitting coach, John Mallee, prepare infielder Donnie Murphy before a game in Atlanta.

 

Fans think that Spring Training is when ball players go to Florida to hang out and play golf, but actually Spring Training is where they make their living. Game times are typically around 1:00 during spring training, but players and coaches at up at 5:00am and hitting by 6:30am.

Watch Marlins infielder, Osvaldo Martinez, work on what is known as “front toss” drills. By 7:00am he had already swung the bat over 100 times.

Many pro players have been using the CamWood bat for all their training purposes, and are now beginning to use it while on deck.

Unlike the traditional donut that breaks down the mechanics, the CamWood bat is perfectly weighted to develop perfect muscle memory that players can take to the plate. Watch AA second baseman, Jim Negrych, transfer his on deck routine into three line drives to all fields.
