It's Not Crazy, It's Sports -- Sign Language

The game within the game is as old as baseball itself. Thousands of signs are given each game, thrown by coaches and players throughout each play. Some are decoys, others are not. Fastball up and in. Look the runner back. Squeeze bunt. Over and over, until the next play. It's not crazy, it's sports.

Services - Hitting Instruction

Hitting a baseball and teaching the major league swing have been an endeavor I have taken to heart over the past few years. Being mentored—and certified—by Ted Williams has given Mike Epstein insights into the science of proper hitting technique that very few have ever had access to; For baseball or softball. They continually upgrade their products and teaching instruction methods to keep you on the leading-edge of what is being taught in today's hitting community. As a Certified Epstein Hitting Instructor let me put these techniques to work to help your son or daughter improve.

We live by one simple measure of success.Yours.

Personal Instruction
Awareness is the first step; let's take it together

"I realize that we live in a "microwave society" where everyone wants everything "yesterday.” Unfortunately, Mother Nature makes no allowances for hitters in this regard. Becoming a good hitter takes time—and patience. Believe me, talking with many players who have been there and done it at baseball’s highest levels, everyone agrees that there are no shortcuts-None.

Teaching hitting should be presented in a logical, progressive, and straight-forward manner to the student. It should also make sense. There is little to gain from a haphazard, non-structured approach to the learning process. It's a waste of time and money.

In sports, players rarely get a second chance to make a good first impression. Taking the time necessary to choose a hitting instructor and the philosophy you can live with, is very important to their continued advancement."

Take the first step...

Our individual and group lessons typically last 70-90 minutes and always include full use of theEpstein Swing Analyzer motion analysis computer with a 32" flat screen display. Parents are welcome and encouraged to attend, watch, and learn with their son/daughter to make this a one-of-a-kind learning experience.

For local players, we offer no-risk swing evaluations to determine the player's current mechanics. The evaluation typically lasts 75-90 minutes and encompasses the player's swing analysis, mechanics review and history, as well as frame-by-frame on-screen synchronization with current MLB All-Stars. The evaluation is a wonderful way to not only see one's swing compared to MLB players, but also former Epstein and Baseball Barn hitters of the same age and ability level.

Awareness is the first step; let's take it together. I urge you to contact us today to find the right program for your son or daughter.

How to Make Proper Pitching Mechanic Changes to Any Pitcher

Do you want to learn how to properly make mechanical changes that won't increase the risk of arm injuries or reduce velocity? In episode 6 of the "Pitching Factor" we go over why pitching drills do NOT improve pitching mechanics. I also give you the information that you need to maximize your pitching when you work on your specific mechanics

Services - Pitching Instruction

Our passionate pitching instructors have learned that “belief based” styles of instruction lead to improper development of pitching mechanics that can lead to unnecessary arm strain, especially in youth pitchers. Recent studies have demonstrated that nearly 50% of Little League and High School pitchers regularly pitch with some degree of pain. Here at the BB we focus on correcting pitchers mechanical faults, through the use of video analysis. The entire pitching delivery takes on average less than 1.5 seconds! Far too quickly to accurately analyze with the naked eye. Through our system of fault recognition, we teach pitchers not only how to correct their mechanical faults, but just as importantly we teach them to use their body in an explosive way to generate velocity using the entire kinetic chain. Whether you are a Little Leaguer starting out, or a High School senior trying to play at the next level, come to the Baseball Barn for a video Analysis and Assessment.
Our instructors will create a plan for improvement to help you with all of the following:
• Correcting mechanical faults

• How to move effectively to maximize your velocity potential

• How to create an Explosive Delivery through our Pitcher specific fitness training that focuses on power, agility and speed.

• Improve your Mental Focus and learn how the best pitchers can be calm even in the highest pressure situations

• Improve your pick off moves and keep base runners from advancing

• Recognizing hitting styles and how to keep batters off balance and guessing, through proper pitch selection. Remember, pitching in more than just throwing hard.
