The Insider Bat™ is a revolutionary baseball muscle memory training tool, and it is made in the U.S.A.! The Insider Bat promotes proper bat grip, hand placement and proper swing path before, during and after contact is made with the ball. The unique design allows for only one way to make contact with the ball... the CORRECT way!
The Insider Bat™ is made with aircraft 6061 grade aluminum and stainless steel. The shaft and "sweet spot" are powder-coated and finished with a high gloss clear coat.
"Muscle memory" is a term used to describe a learned movement, pattern or habit. By performing the same movement pattern repeatedly, more effective nerve/muscle connections are made. These connections that are made repeat more effectively each time used. After developing muscle memory, the new action is automatic and will be performed without conscious thought.
The Insider Bat™ will assist in creating positive muscle memory for a fundamentally correct swing. In addition the Insider Bat™ will:
- Emphasize palm up/palm down hand positioning before, during and after contact with the ball
- Provide instant feedback for batter and coach
- Train hitter not to roll wrists or sweep (cast) before or during contact with ball
- Promote proper grip of bat
- Emphasize "staying inside the ball" before and during contact
- Promote proper hip rotation during swing
- Force hands in front of bat head during swing
- Promote tucking of back elbow into "slot"
The Insider Bat:
- Can be used anywhere, anytime, indoors or outdoors
- Is great for pre-game drills or "on deck" reinforcement tool
- Excellent when used as one arm hitting drills
- Is Designed for the beginner as well as seasoned pro
- Can be used for Baseball or Softball hitting drills
A hitter, regardless of age or ability level, does not necessarily need to know the complicated "physics" of a swing. He or she does not need to know why their hands should be palm up/palm down at contact, why they should not cast (sweep) the bat, etc. They simply need to swing the bat correctly.
The Insider Bat™ was developed for this reason.
Where should I line up the ball when using the Insider Bat?
We have found that lining up the ball between the belt buckle and front leg gets the best results. The ball in this area really forces the hitter to "stay inside" the ball when using the Insider Bat. Also, when soft tossing, pitch ball in same area.
What drills can be used with the Insider Bat?
One armed drills are excellent drills when using the Insider Bat. Also, line up a target (trash can lid, cardboard, etc.) 5 – 10 feet away. The hitter sometimes will not even realize that every time they hit the target, they are further ingraining the proper muscle memory of the correct swing. Also, pregame and on deck during a game is a great time for last minute reinforcement before going to the plate.
Can I use hard balls with the insider bat?
No. The Insider Bat should only be used w/plastic, foam and tennis type balls.
My son / daughter is very young and inexperienced. Will the Insider Bat work for them?
Definitely. The beauty of the device is that the hitter does not need to know the complicated "physics" of the swing. They simply need to put the paddle flat on the ball and they will begin to develop the proper swing fundamentals from the start. If they can kill a fly with a flyswatter, they can use the Insider bat properly.
What is the oval shape of the handle for?
The oval shape of the handle is used to prevent the hitter from "choking" the Insider Bat. If the hitter "chokes" the Insider Bat, he/she will not be able to make correct contact with the paddle.
