CHICAGO WHITE SOX OFF-SEASON HITTING SYSTEMThe most essential program we offer for the Premier player! This 20-week dynamic hitting and Explosion Sports Performance off-season program was developed for the premier and aspiring premier player. This intensive 80 hour training system meets two days per week, two hours per day. Workouts include 1 hour of advanced hitting instruction and 1 hour of our own Explosion sports conditioning training each day. Participants will have free use of available batting cages on Fridays. Hitting sessions focus on systematic drill progression, allowing hitters to make the adjustments needed to be successful at the next level. Sessions include instruction by former Major Leaguers Dan Pasqua, Michael Huff and Jim Adduci as well as additional guest instructors with Major League, Minor League and/or college playing experience, high school and College coaches.
Hitting phases covered include:
• Proper stance enabling the hitters to relax and create a hitting position that allows hands to freely work to and through the baseball
• Striding into a hitting position enabling the hitter to develop a sound approach covering the entire plate
• Lower half body mechanics enabling a hitter to hit with balance and gain an understanding of linear vs. rotational hitting
• Hand path and swing plane enabling the hitter to understand the use of their hands in the swing (both top and bottom hand)
• Contact points enabling the hitter to understand the meaning of allowing a ball to get deep vs. getting the barrel out front
• Proper mental approach including discussions about approach, situational hitting, and thinking along with the pitcher and catcher
