The Backspin Tee is for anyone who is interested in learning how to hit line drives. This tee is the only inverted tee on the market that will help you develop the habit of hitting below what we believe to be the true middle of the ball. For more information or to purchase this tee go to BackSpinTee.com.
With this hitting tee your baseball or softball fits securely in an inverted cone that covers the top half of the ball to force you to focus on the middle-bottom half of the ball. It is scientifically proven that by hitting 2 centimeters below the equator line your ball will have more backspin which sends the ball farther into the field. With this tee you too can learn how to hit that perfect back spin all the time.
This tee is quickly becoming one of the most popular hitting trainer tees. To improve your hitting game today and order your Backspin Tee, Go to BackSpinTee.com!
This week I am featuring a product review on a very effective hitting station by Schutt Sports. I think everyone would agree the downside to batting practice is chasing and gathering up the balls afterwards. Most players would be outside practicing their hitting mechanics more often if they didn’t have to chase after every ball. You know hitting practice is especially tough when you don't have a partner with you to toss the ball or load one back up on the tee. Or maybe you're a coach that needs an easy to set up hitting station for pre-game warm. I have found the solution to your problems with the Schutt Sports Striker II.
The Striker II is an excellent portable hitting station that can be used by yourself to work on your hitting mechanics. This device can be attached to any chain-link fence at the softball park or even in your own back yard. Attached to the fence at your desired height, the Striker II extends outwards and provides you with a ball to hit that you will never have to chase. The baseball is securely attached to a rotating rope that allows it to spin when you hit the ball. Don't be alarmed, the baseball attached is great for softball players too. This way, the smaller ball will help a softball player focus in on hitting the sweet spot.
The Striker II is a great tool to enhance your hitting mechanics whether you are practicing or warming up for a game. It is very portable and can fit in almost any size equipment bag. Giving a player the ability to practice mechanics the easiest way possible makes me love the Striker II. Its almost effortless to go outside and get in a good hitting practice session using this convenient training aid. The best part is that you don't waste any time picking up balls, just keep hitting non-stop with no interruptions!
Do you have a young pitcher looking to learn and perfect her skills? Ever wonder how to throw a Rise ball, Change up, Fastball, or Drop ball like an Olympic pitcher? Excellent pitching mechanics is a key factor for young pitchers learning how to pitch. When a Fastpitch Softball pitcher starts off with excellent mechanics and techniques, they are less likely to develop bad habits. Developing bad habits is a key thing to avoid when just beginning. Pitching requires a number of tools and techniques to learn how to throw the ball with maximum power and most importantly, movement. One thing that young pitchers work best off of is visual tools. Let me introduce the Christie Ambrosi Softball Pitching Trainer.
Christie Ambrosi is well known for her Faspitch Softball Olympic Gold Medal win in 2000. Soon after, she was approached by a friend, and agreed it would be an excellent idea to develop a new pitching trainer for young Fastpitch pitchers. Ambrosi endorsed the creation of a softball that would allow young pitchers to learn the exact spins and finger placing techniques she used during her entire Fastpitch Softball career, including in the Olympics. The Christie Ambrosi Softball Pitching Trainer is an 11 inch softball that includes color-coded pitches. Color-codes on the softball show you exactly how to place your fingers on the ball to throw specific pitches. Learn how to throw Ambrosi’s most famous and best pitches such as a Rise Ball, Turn Over Drop Ball, Fastball, and Change Up.
The Christie Ambrosi Pitcher’s Softball is an essential training tool for any first-time pitcher or pitchers wanting to develop their skills to the next level. The best part about this ball is it can be used by left and right handed pitchers. This set comes with one 11 inch color-coded softball and an instructional booklet. An 11 inch softball that shows you how to throw pitches just like an Olympic Gold Medalist, what more could you ask for?
A few weeks ago I was contacted by the media people at Louisville Slugger about reviewing their new custom bat program.
The folks at Louisville Slugger wanted my thoughts on their new custom bat program, and wanted me to share my thoughts with you the Fastpitch TV audience.
Louisville Slugger requested I go online, and actually go threw the same process of designing and buying a custom bat that a customer would do. I even got to choose any color combinations I desired.
This really did appeal to me since it actually allowed me to see what was involved in using their online design center which is located at http://custom.slugger.com
Let me tell you how the process of using the design center works for creating the bat of your dreams.
Upon opening the landing page you will need to choose between three options. You must decide if you want a custom wood bat, custom fastpitch bat, or custom fan collectable.
I am sure you will know what you want even before you get to the website.
After you have chosen fastpitch bats you will come to the information page about the LXT Hyper Fastpitch Bat. This basically tells you all about the bat you are getting ready to order.
Part of the information is the size options for the bat which are as follows:
The drop 11″ comes in 29″, 30″, 31″, 32″, 33″ lengths.
The drop 10″ comes in 31″, 32″, 33″, 34″ lengths.
The drop 9″ comes in 33″, 34″ lengths.
The drop 8″ comes in a 34″ length.
While there you will also see the following description:
The bat most frequently selected by elite Fastpitch players now brings one more thing to the table: customization. The LXT HYPER features new technology for the ultimate balanced swing weight and maximum pop, allowing players to get the most from their bat when they step into the box. The LXT HYPER is built with a 100% composite design and new PBF Barrel Technology that doubles the sweet spot for unmatched power. Louisville Slugger has improved the patented TRU3 Dynamic Socket Connection, allowing for necessary movement between the barrel and handle to maximize the barrel trampoline effect and eliminate negative vibration — giving you the best possible feel when you bring the bat through the zone. With thousands of color combinations to choose from, custom LXT HYPER bats are available in -11, -10, -9 and -8.
From there you will start with the process of designing your bat by choosing Customize.
Step 1 Choose Your Barrel Options: A. Choose between matte or gloss finish. B. Choose the base color fir your bat from 14 colors. C. Choose the color for the word Louisville on the barrel, and at the end of barrel from 18 colors. D. Choose the color of the word LXT from 18 colors.
Step 2 Choose Your Handle Options: A. Choose your handle base color from 16 colors. This is the actual color of the handle. B. Choose the color of the decal on the handle from 18 colors. C. Choose the cone color from 14 color combinations. This is the connector between the barrel and the handle.
Step 3 Choose Your Grip Options: A. Choose the color of your grip tape from 21 colors and combinations.
Step 4 Choose Your End Cap and Knob Options: A. Choose your end cap from 14 color combinations. B. Choose your knob color from 16 colors.
Step 5 choose your weight drop & length: A. Choose the weight drop for your bat. B. Choose the length for your bat. C. Choose from Left, or right handed bat. Yes, the grip tape is applied differently for left handed vs. right handed players.
Step 6 Personalize your barrel: A. Add text to the barrel of your bat up to 9 characters. B. Choose the color of your text from 13 colors. C. Choose a font for your text from 4 different fonts.
Step 7 Review and buy: A. Review the order and agree that it is what you want. B Add to your shopping cat and purchase.
That is it. That is all there is to it. I designed my custom bat in less than 5 minutes and around 4 weeks later my custom bat showed up at my doorstep.
Of course I love the look of my new bat. Why did I love it? Because I designed it myself.
Now here is the best thing about the bat. It is a Louisville Slugger LXT which is probably the number one bat on the market.
Yes, not only do you get a great looking bat by designing it yourself, but you get a hitting machine of a bat.
I personally give the process of ordering your custom Louisville Slugger 5 out of 5 stars.

Batting gloves are a common staple in every ballplayer’s bag. Whether they are 5 or 50 the majority of softball and baseball players prefer to use batting gloves to prevent blisters or calluses. Batting gloves come in different sizes, brands, styles, and colors. What if there were batting gloves that could actually improve your offensive game? You are in luck because the Turboslot batting gloves do just that.
Turboslot batting gloves improve the grip on the bat to keep the bat in the fingers instead of in the palm of your hand. When the bat is in your fingers, it is easier to control and gives the hitter a better chance for an optimal contact point. With the Turboslot batting gloves there is a thick layer of padding that is sewn in between the index finger and the thumb on each glove. The bat rests on the padding and forces the hitter to place the bat in their finger tips. Also, the padding on the batting gloves reduces vibration on miss hits. Whether you hit the ball off the end of the bat or on the handle, the Turboslot padding in the batting gloves absorbs the vibrations.
The Turboslot batting gloves are a way to gain greater bat control and improve the way the bat feels in your hands. By getting these batting gloves you give your hitter more confidence. They will be uncomfortable for the first couple of uses, but once you are used to them, your hitter won’t want to wear anything else! The Turboslot batting gloves are a great way to give your batter more confidence at the plate. Get your Turboslot batting gloves today!
