My son has been an eat, sleep l, ive and breathe baseball kid since he was 3 years old. He started playing toddler t-ball at 3 and plays to this day..he is 12. Over the years we have seen many many training aids come and go, but this is the one that came and stayed.He has this in his bag alongside his real bat and it goes each and every time he goes to the ball park.
All your baseball kid needs to use this aid is a buddy, you can always find a buddy at the ball park.The buddy just put his hand through the wrist strap and holds the stick in the strike zone, or swings the stick through the strike zone to simulate a pitched ball. The batter simply hits the stick. Chasing the ball is eliminated making swing, or batting practice much more effective. The stick is shaped somewhat like a baseball on the end and the body is made of a flexible material to absorb the shock of the hit.
It comes in 2 sizes, short, for the t-ballers, and longer for the big boys. It also comes in 2 colors, yellow to help the little guys learn to look for the ball, and red for the older boys who say"burn it in"...red goes fast.( I heard this somewhere... hehe) This stick has the high 5 of all the kids at the ball park, so you cant go wrong.
