Swing Institute lets hitters launch homers out of the park without ever leaving the batting cage. With its Hit Trax batting development system—one of several training tools used by the pros—an advanced simulation system tracks a batter's every swing as if they were playing in a major-league park.
After practice, video training allows players to relive their swings and analyze any pitfalls by watching batting-cage video, complete with stats such as batting average, SLG, spray charts, strike-zone analysis, and the distance of each hit. These modern takes on traditional baseball practice, which Swing Institute coaches use for beginners and serious players alike, boast approval from owner Jasha Balcom, a former Chicago Cub.
