Most of them, I’ll just hand it to them and say figure it out, use your core to free up the hands and pound it. I’ve also told all our guys they will be getting their own strap and they are so pumped. “Really? Oh, that’s awesome coach!” - Rusty Mac, Hitting Coach; University of Hawaii
Oh, I felt that!
Just took two of our freshman and had one with the front elbow inside, and the other with the back elbow; to fix their problems. With a couple of swing with my guidance, they were on balls with better positioning and contact. Both of them on a couple of swings gave that look of “oh I felt that.” I appreciate it; our number one goal is getting our guys better. - Rusty Mac, Hitting Coach; University of Hawaii
Two more players used the Laser Strap today in tee work and then live machine work on the field. Mashing. The product is sweet every guy on the team has at least seen somebody else wear it and RAM baseballs. - Rusty Mac, Hitting Coach; University of Hawaii
Within five swings he had it!
We had another satisfied customer today; a stud outfielder wore it through all his stations. After practice, our starting third baseman said, “coach can I try that strap? How’s it work?” Took him into the cage, explained up and in location, rotate to stay connected and drive top hand thru the ball. Within five swings he had it. Explained low and away, seated balance and core to the ball; and top hand release through contact, smashing it with backspin to oppo gap, killing it! - Rusty Mac, Hitting Coach; University of Hawaii
Kid was barreling everything!
We had a freshman the other day use it in tee work then later we were in the field hitting off a machine with no timing mechanism. The kid was barreling everything with backspin to the pull side and not getting hook spin that he gets a lot of at times. It was impressive, our other head coach just kept looking at me and raising his eyebrows. - Rusty Mac, Hitting Coach; University of Hawaii
