Major Leaguers are made"

Q. Mickey Mantle, Joe Dimaggio, Ted Williams, Willie Mays, Hank Aaron, Roger Maris, Ken Griffey Jr., Barry Bonds, Tino Martinez and Chipper Jones.

What do all these baseball players have in common?

A. Yes they are all great athletes, but in addition to that, they all hit off their back foot and into their front foot. That's called a weight shift.

This is the style that Coach Phil teaches. He has helped many people learn to play the game and he can help you. You will agree that he is the best hitting instructor you have ever been to.

A great place to bring a team or individual who wants to learn fundamentals of hitting.
