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.

A very good tool to condition the hands to retain the proper position thru the swing. Also works well in positioning hands to ball placement for inside/outside pitches. Good for very young athletes just learning.
Works better than I thought
Have only been using The Insider Bat for a few weeks, but the girls really like it. It is easy to use and provides instant visual and tactile feedback. I can’t wait to see the results after consistent use.
i am satisfied thanks
I ordered the Insider Bat for my grandson hoping it would help him learn to keep his swing 'inside the ball' as he's been trying to do for some time. This product has helped him to understand the 'inside the ball' concept so much better than theoretical instruction ever could and in a short amount of time. I'd recommend it to any young hitter looking to improve his hitting skill.
Got what i ordered when I was expecting it.
Great product. Works great. Good price and very quick delivery.
college team is excited to get to use them. Many of them have tried them in the past.
It's a wonderful product that helps a hitter learn to be short to the ball and long through the ball.
The baseball academy I operate has recently incorporated use of the Insider Bat into our lessons. So far, the feedback has been great. The Insider Bat does a great job of showing players the proper way to approach contact and reduces the desire to cast the bat and roll over. The bat has helped players of all levels find major and minor flaws in their swing. Often, explaining the proper approach to younger players isn't enough, which is why the visual feedback of each swing helps tremendously. Seeing the results of making contact the correct way has translated directly into their swings. The Insider Bat is a great tool for instructors and coaches to use to get students to feel the proper approach. One session with the bat will not correct everything, as there is no miracle tool for baseball training, but consistent use in drill sessions will have a lasting effect.
This is an excellent tool to compliment your plan in developing hitters of all levels and abilities.
