HandsBack Hitting Tee Batting Trainer for Baseball Teams
The Hands Back Hitter™ Pro Model is the simplest, most affordable, yet most instructive training aid on the market. And to insure that you will practice often, it makes you a better hitter while you are having fun.
The Hands Back Hitter Pro-Model. (Uses ALL type balls real and plastic; baseball or softball). The unique popper design allows the operator to adjust pitch height for any type ball. The same unit assembles for righties and lefties. It comes with an extra string, 12 medium weight plastic balls, and a CD-ROM training disc. This patented pitching machine/ batting tee hybrid controls the swing sequence for teaching rotational hitting and opposite field mechanics . Extremely durable and used from LL to D-1 Programs. The trainer players love to use.
The Hands Back Hitter™, the affordable, portable, personal batting station that keeps them training and swinging right even when your not there.
1. What do you do for LH batters?
The same unit ASSEMBLES for either RH OR LH.
2. Can you change it over?
You can but it takes about 3-4 minutes and most coaches buy two (2) for team practice because of the price, it just saves time and you can run two stations at once.
3. What balls do I use?
It comes with 12 medium weight plastic balls but you can use real baseballs, softballs, and golf ball wifflesTM too.
4. What powers it?
There is a patented spring popper that allows height adjustment for all weight balls...it takes no electricity. You can use it is the rain.
5. Will the string wear out?
We recommend no cleats but strings have not been a problem. Besides they add a second string free just in case.
6. How will I know how to use it?
It comes with a Training CD with about 100 slides with some streaming video. If you do not have a computer, it has pictures with instructions in the assembly guide and coaching tips.
7. What ages and gender?
It adjusts for arm length and the long trigger area allows the batter to move up and away about 14 inches with no adjustment between batters required. Very athletic 6-7 Y.O kids learn well and all payers up to and through college. Most now consider the fast pitch swing to be the same as MLB swing so it have equal application for baseball and softball.
8. How hard is it to assemble?
4 hands tighten knobs and NO TOOLS
the popper is pre-assembled.
9. Do you have to cock it each time?
Yes, we want them to work more slowly, concentrating on balance, stride, and load. Swinging in rapid succession makes for upper body hitters. This is what makes this trainer so good.
10. Why does it make you hit better?
The Hands Back Hitter separates the swing and the stride and forces deeper ball contact. It promotes a hip driven swing that is powerful and adjust for different pitch speeds.
