Product Perspective

January:  Wood bats come in many grains, colors, and trendy gimmicks. The best bang for the buck, however, is not in ash or maple. The best bat on the market, based in terms of strength of fiber and flexibility is a hidden gem. It is: BAMBOO! Bamboo bats have an unmatched hardness, as they naturally do not require layers of lacquer to provide strength that maple and ash bats commonly do. What's even better about bamboo bats besides their durability and longevity, is their ease on the wallet, as most bamboo bats have a lifetime no-break warranty. It is a great investment for youngsters and advanced hitters alike. The one drawback, however, is that they are sometimes hard to find in youth sizes. 


February: Resistance training in baseball is often overlooked by many coaches and trainers, especially for younger athletes. With RT, younger athletes get a three-for-one deal. Players get the actual lift, the resistance after the lift and, perhaps most important, the construct for muscle memory. The younger the athlete, the smaller amount of weight should be used, as small frames have a lot of development for years to come. So, to put too much strain on a young body is fruitless and potentially hazardous. Having said that, however, many reps at light weight can be very productive in producing weight, counterweight, and muscle memory. For example, if a young ballplayer uses a two-pound freeweight, and uses it through every stage of the throwing motion, that young ballplayer is on his way to establishing a regiment for the future, but more importantly, building muscle memory through every stage of the motion.
