Proven Training Methods Combine the Best of
better, it doesn't matter what size you are,
I am really excited to be sharing this information with you. Why? Because it works! We have been offering this program online for more than five years now. So pay close attention - what we'll cover in this report contains some meaty information that you can benefit from immediately.
My job in the next few minutes is to show you how to train so you can handle serious "gas" and make it look easy. Let me tell you, few things can match the thrill of crushing a high-velocity fastball. Either a frozen rope up the middle or a titanic jack out of the park, one of those shots you barely feel because you drilled it right on the "sweet spot" of your bat - is one of the things that makes baseball such a great game.
And if this hasn't happened to you yet, or it doesn't happen often enough, all I can say is, get ready - your game is about to drastically change. With my guidance, you can become the power hitter you've always wanted to be.
Please note, this is not another "How-To-Hit" instructional. There are many of these on the market already. The specialized conditioning drills and information contained in the Baseball Program to Increase Bat Speed & Hitting Power, 2nd Edition, are designed to help develop the all-important aspect of hitting known as BAT SPEED. Increased BAT SPEED means increased HITTING POWER!

From Good - to ALL STATE
Before we get started, allow me to introduce myself. My name is Steve Zawrotny and I'm a former college baseball player and coach with more than 30 years in the game, from Little League through NCAA D-1. I do private baseball pitching and bat speed instruction in the Oklahoma City area, and strength program design and consulting with players around the world. What you'll learn in my program is exactly what I teach my players, who pay me by the hour for my services.
The TRUTH About Developing REAL Hitting Power
In this report I'm going to reveal some things about bat speed and hitting power that you've likely never considered before. These are concepts and techniques I personally mastered during my playing career, improved upon as a coach, and now teach to my players and students. The further you read, the more you'll learn about what it takes to become a consistent power hitter.
Think about the game and its demands - just how strong do you really have to be to play it well? In baseball, the ball is 5 ounces and bats weigh approximately 30 oz. Heck, a lot of young players drain cups of Pepsi and Mountain Dew that weigh more than that!
Baseball is a game of explosive POWER, not brute strength. Picking up a 30 oz bat is a measure of strength. Using it to blast a baseball 400+ feet is a measure of POWER.
If you can't hit a baseball very well and decide to begin a weight lifting program, you'll become a strong player who still can't hit a baseball!
This chart shows an approximation of how bat speed translates into distance. Increases in your bat speed will yield the additional distance as shown:
Your mileage may vary, of course. A number of factors will affect how far a batted ball travels, including weather, humidity, the type of ball and bat used, speed of the pitched ball, etc. Still, these numbers will generally hold true and can give you a good idea of how this type of training will enhance your game.
And just how long will it take to accomplish this? My entire program takes only 6 weeks, and

Want to immediately improve your ability to make hard, consistent contact as a hitter?
TIP #1: Start taking ALL of your batting practice with a wood bat instead of metal. Why? Because the "sweet spot" on a metal bat is much larger than that of wood. This is one key reason young players learn incorrect batting technique and develop bad habits - metal is much more forgiving if you don't hit a ball on the nose. Look at these pictures of this softball hitter making contact with a metal bat:
What do you think would have happened to this bat if it had been wood? It most likely would have broken, resulting in a weakly hit ball. This picture is from the Women's College World Series of 2006, and get this - the caption accompanying this picture said the hitter hit a home run on this pitch! This is how metal bats create bad habits - this particular stroke produced a hit on what probably should have been an out.
Most hitters make this mistake all too often - miss hitting the ball - resulting in poor contact, loss of power, and lowered batting average, even when using a metal bat.
Practicing with wood will train you to refine & improve your swing.
With wood, when you don't hit the ball on the sweet spot, the bat vibrates, causing PAIN in your hands. This immediate feedback allows you a way to adjust your swing, or else you keep experiencing PAIN! You may have felt this with your metal bat. Trust me, it's worse with wood. That's exactly why practicing with wood is so valuable.
Come game time, use your metal bat and watch your newly "honed in" swing boost your average and power just from this type of practice alone.
Have you noticed yet that the things we've discussed so far go against much of the "conventional wisdom," yet they make perfect sense? Well, keep on reading - it gets better!
TIP #2: The next time you're in the on-deck circle, getting ready for your turn at bat, DO NOT use a heavy donut. Why? Because clinical research and on-field performance have repeatedly shown this device actually inhibits bat speed.
The same thing is true for the practice of taking dry-swings while holding several bats as well as using other heavily-weighted devices.
Yes, I know this goes against everything you've been taught and have been doing. But if you've read this far, you're probably highly interested in improving your bat speed and hitting power.
You therefore need to be open to the idea that just because everyone is doing something doesn't necessarily mean it's a good idea. Incorrect ideas abound in baseball, as in most areas of life.
Why should you not swing a heavy implement while in the on-deck circle?
Because this technique fatigues the fast-twitch muscle fibers you will momentarily be using to hit with at the plate!
So if you shouldn't use a heavy donut or swing several bats at the same time, what should you do?
