Publisher's Summary

Every good hitter is fighting a battle.... Do you know what yours is and how to turn it to your advantage on the field?

Three out of every four appearances at the plate result in an out. You probably know this...so why are you doubting your skills?

To hit like a pro, you need to think like a pro - and that means mastering a specific mental attitude as well as your physical technique.

Sound like a lot to handle?

If you love the game, it’s not so hard - you just need some expert guidance...and you’re about to get it.

In The Baseball Player’s Guide to Hitting Like a Pro, you’ll find a clear guide to improving your hitting technique, without focusing on mechanics alone. You’ll discover:

  • The seven key elements needed to build a strong foundation for good hitting 
  • Why bench-time may not be such a bad thing - and how you can use it to your advantage 
  • How to look beyond the field to improve your attitude (and why you should) 
  • The reason why it isn’t just top hitters you should be learning from - and who you should be looking at instead 
  • Swing fundamentals broken down into key elements - so you know exactly what it is you should be working on 
  • Why confidence is just as problematic as self-doubt - and what you can do to mitigate it if you’re on a streak 
  • The power of "Situational Spirit" - what it is, and how to harness its power
  • And much more

If you’ve fallen into a slump and you’re doubting your skills as a hitter, don’t despair. Even the top players have been there.... The difference is that they know a secret.

It won’t always be easy, but if you recognize that, you’re already halfway there: get ready to learn that secret, and watch your ranking improve - even when it feels like it never will.

If you’re ready to master the true technique of the pros and elevate your swing, then scroll up, and click “buy” right now.

Very Helpful for My Son

My son was into soccer before covid hit and then... no soccer! Now he's into baseball, so I got him this audiobook (he is also dyslexic, so the audiobook version is awesome for him). I love how it gives all the most important strategies and techniques. I also think it's great to add the mindset emphasis. The author keeps it simple and stresses what to tweak. My son has so much more confidence since listening.

My son is going into 3rd grade and I showed him this book and since then I can tell he is a much better hitter. It really emphasizes the fundamentals, which I think is great!

Where was this book when I was a kid?

I wish there was a book like this around when I was younger learning to play the game. This book has so much information and helpful tips for truly strengthening your skills of the game. I thought it was particularly interesting to hear about how you have to really learn the umpires strike zone and calls. I always wondered why it was so difficult to grasp why it was so different with every ump. Great book!

Great insight for all players

If you are really looking to up your hitting game, this is a great book. Not only did it provide guidance on how to stand and swing better but also provided insight to what's going on with the pitcher and how to begin to anticipate what may be thrown your way. This is a book that players, coaches and parents should listen to if you have a child in baseball, boy or girl. I know when I played softball, I was a power hitter but I never really had anyone guide me on the correct way to stand or swing. I think this would have helped me become a much better player if I had the chance to listen to it back then.

This is without a doubt a book that anyone interested in learning baseball should listen to, because not only does the narrator take the time to carefully explain how to play the game step by step, but it is also narrated in a very clear and easy to understand tone and speed.

Smashed it out the park!

Really great listen this was! Picked this one up on a whim to see if I could pick up any good technique tips which could help improve my hitting game. The psychological aspect to becoming a great hitter is often over-looked by coaches and players alike but this does a great job at explaining its importance and how to get yourself into a better mindset when hitting
