Clinic Overview: Our athletes work on hitting approach and situational hitting in addition to mechanics. Our program helps our athletes create more efficient hitting patterns. Our weighted bat program has been extremely successful in creating increased bat speed.
Key Elements of Our Program: Proper warmup and medicine ball work for muscle activation and proper patterning- including individualized movement and drill plans for each hitter. Mechanical instruction to maximize a hitter's margin of error with improved timing and swing path. Variation Training where we put our hitters in challenging environments so when its time to step in the batter's box, they can make in game adjustments that will increase their success. We use a mix of machines to train competitively and work on velocity and hand eye coordination. Bat Speed training using overload/underload bats, tracked by blast motion. Video Analysis and Output Measurement using HitTrax (www.hittraxbaseball.com) Addressing approach and the mental Side of Hitting.
Our hitter's leave our program with improved bat speed, adjustability, and better approaches to hitting. They have more confidence because they understand why things happen to hitters and they can quickly self-correct. We work to build our hitters into their own best coaches.
Our hitting program is under the leadership and direction of Mike Montville who is a hitting coach for the Boston Red Sox AAA affiliate the Worcester Red Sox. Mike has consulted with softball coaches and players about all the similarities of the swing between baseball and softball. Mike played years of minor league baseball for the Rockland Boulders of the Can-Am Professional Baseball League. He spent 4 years at the University of Maryland and went on to get his master's degree in Sport Management while playing his 5th year at SNHU. He is a graduate of Portsmouth High School, where he helped lead his team to 3 state championships and a 63-game winning streak. He received Gatorade's Player of the Year in 2009 & 2010.
