The father & son relationship many times depends on the success in sports competition. In baseball, the father and son develops a relationship and eventually start to work on skills together. Hitting is the one skill that gets very tricky when it comes to the father & son bond. Unfortunately, as a hitting coach for over 20 years, I have seen the relationship between father & son go bad just because of efforts on trying to figure out hitting!
If you follow our websites, including Moneyball Hitter Magazine (www.moneyballhitter.com), we have continually delivered the message that hitting is very much misunderstood from the Major Leagues on down. As a matter of fact, if you have read are articles and viewed many of our videos, we have proven with no doubt that the training technology that Major League Baseball is using is not working.
Hitting is at its worst statistically since 1972 in the MLB and the trickling effect of this has affected the minor, college, and high school levels also. The problem is that all the information you may here from MLB hitting coaches, college and high school coaches, and baseball academies are variations of the same information shared with major league hitters.
Our research especially tells us that the information about hitting is misunderstood and confusing hitters so much right now that relationships between owners, coaches, players, and fathers are deeply being affected negatively because of the problem that hitting poses.
If MLB hitting coaches get fired constantly from one year to the next for declining hitting numbers, then imagine what the relations between a father and son may be from one year to the next if they are both trying to figure out hitting?
We know the father wants their son to enjoy baseball and get better at hitting. We also know that the father puts his time in researching the skills and mechanics of hitting to help train his son. We also know that most all of the information out there about hitting trickles down from what they teach at the MLB levels; leaving a lot of room for error in helping hitters reach their potential!
So father’s, if you have done your research and tried to incorporate big league hitting mechanics with your son and you find the process very challenging, then quit blaming you or your son! More times than not, this means you do not have the right information!
The problem is that most fathers are lead to believe they do have the right information because it comes from the big leagues. We are very serious when we say that Big League Coaches would have major problems even getting a travel ball team to hit with what they teach. How do we knows this?
Moneyball is a specialty group who has trained over 100 teams in an elite formula very different from what is being taught at the Major League level. Currently we have been on a pace on helping individuals and teams increase their batting average and slugging percentage by more than 50 points!
Yes a lot of these teams have been trained in very professional hitter training prior to receiving the Moneyball Training. Since our techniques are very different from traditional MLB techniques, we know why there are major struggles with Major League hitting right now. They are simply learning techniques that we limiting their potential.
This has been happening ever since the steroid era ended about a decade ago and now it has gotten to a critical point. So critical that MLB is worried and is forcing teams to hire 2 hitting coaches per team to try to save hitting from declining to far.
Extra sports psychologist, enhanced video technology, strength and conditioning coaches, and even expected changes to squeeze the strike zone in 2015 have all been attempts to help the hitters. These attempts have not worked and actually the harder they try the worse it gets.
We here at Moneyball know it is all technique and that our technique secrets are long lost secrets that are connected to Ted Williams thoughts about hitting, but not connected to current rotational mechanics in hitting, Clearly that is not working as well either.
The Moneyball techniques are every simple and the most powerful out there. It is the only training formula that works hitter to a superior level of hitting within the first season learning the techniques. They are designed to work quickly and get a hitter back on path and out of their slumps right away!
The Moneyball formula takes great pride in helping the father and son relationship grow to a level beyond what both the father and son would even know. When the father understands the formula and can help the son learn it, results come right away. With results and success comes confidence and better moods that help the father and son relationship grow as the son continues to improve his hitting skills and further his baseball career.
It is that simple!
So the next time there is frustration involved with father and son, stop and think about the cause of the problem. Once you see the big picture like we do at Moneyball then the right information that can rely help will come to you!
