For $25, today's side deal gets you a 60-minute professional baseball training session with video assessment at HittersBox (a $90 value).
HittersBox pairs former college and pro athlete-instructors with individuals or small groups (up to four) of bat-swingers for intense, personalized hourlong training sessions using the same machine the New York Yankees train on daily. Students ages six and up report to the 37,000-square-foot baseball training grounds, where they’ll work with a pitch simulator employed by Major League teams. A variety of real pitches will be thrown at students by a virtual life-sized pitcher. Included in the session is a high-tech instant video analysis, wherein your swing will be instantly captured, replayed, viewed from all angles, and critiqued, allowing you and your instructor to make instant game-changing adjustments.
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.
