During the last hitting camp (July) the 8 players that attended all increased their exit velocities. The average increase across the group was 12%. Most of the players gained between 5-8 mph.
You have two hypothetical players. Let’s call them Player A and Player B.
Player A goes to team practices and hits a ton of balls on their own. This player will get only marginally better over a long period of time.
Player B is given the knowledge and understanding and applies it along with the same “reps” as player A. Player B will be a VASTLY better hitter than Player A in a much shorter period of time simply due to the better understanding and their knowledge helping them get to better outcomes. Players only get marginal results with “extra reps”, compared to “extra reps plus the understanding”.
Take math for example. You will not get better at fractional division, by doing a worksheet of those problems every day. Your answers will always be guesses because you don’t have the knowledge or understanding of how to solve fractional division problems.
However, once you are given the knowledge of flipping the last fraction, and it now is as easy as cross multiplying the numbers – so now you’re a pro.
That’s what this camp is all about. Giving players the understanding and knowledge first, then doing drills to help them “feel” it so they can have those lightbulb moments. This is not a camp where we will take 1000 swings and do drills for 4 hours. This is a camp where it will be a mixture of education and reps, so players are better hitters when they leave – due to understanding how to achieve better game outcomes.
