About Joey Myers
I’m a member of the American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA), the International Youth and Conditioning Association (IYCA), and the Society for American Baseball Research (SABR). I’m also a HUGE supporter of the Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA).
I’ve spent 11+ years in the corrective fitness industry, and have too many alphabet-soup certifications to bore you with. I also played four years of Division One baseball at Fresno State from 2000-2003.
It’s NOT how you study, but what you study that counts. I apply human movement principles (or rules), validated by science, to hitting a baseball and softball.

I read the first edition of The Catapult Loading System a couple years ago. The only reason I did is because I have a Kindle Unlimited membership and the book came up in a search I did for baseball instruction or something. I have been coaching youth baseball since 2003, and… Read more
Hey bud…Jayden had his best batting practice ever last night. Hit at least 9 balls around 300-feet or farther. I’m so happy with his progress so far. You are truly an amazing coach and I appreciate everything you have done for Jayden. I know he still has a long ways to… Read more

I am a Physical Therapist your stuff in body movements is awesome. I went to some FMS courses and Gray Cook spoke highly of you. Your approach is truly the best because of your use of anatomy and kinesiology.
“I bought into this two years ago and bought the book. I coach Fastpitch travel softball. From top to bottom of our batting order pitchers have no batter to pitch around they can all crush the ball and do so consistently!!”
My son is 12 and I have used some of the teaching the Hitting Performance Lab are posting on here and my son hit the ball over 280 feet several times already in the game not just practices and also hit the fence on the fly on 300 feet field, so what this guy is teaching work… Read more
I like what you bring to the hitting world. You speak of things that are not normal hitting talks. The way the body works. I coach 12u Softball and Varsity Softball. First thing I have any hitter do is hit 5 their way. With small tweaks that I learned from catapult hitting s… Read more
Screw those coaches. I didn’t believe the time frame of the catapult system. My son at 10 (90 lbs) is highly coach-able. I taught him the system in February and he hit well during the season but could only hit the ball around 180′. Then all of a sudden around June he started… Read more
Let me just say thank you. This book explains things that seemed unexplainable in the past. You just had to get it. Great stuff. I was a big push the knob back guy..not effective. Turning shoulder down squeezing top hand bottom 3. Who knew? Impact sounds like a shotgun now.
Thank you so much for your help through your book T.C.L.S. I am 13 and weigh around 105 and I finally hit my first home-run! (The field I was on was 226 in center and 175 in left and right). It went about 240+. I think it was going to go further but it hit the the fence on t… Read more
