I use the system to teach my son and he is 4’11 67 pound 10 year old. Meaning he is super skinny and very tall. He hit one in tryouts yesterday 250 in the air. I was in center field shagging balls. It’s real. It happens.
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 go and he will keep working with you to get there. Thanks again brotha.
Thank you Coach! Your stuff is great! My son got his first home run 2 weeks after reading your book. Keeps getting more and more distance now.
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 killing the ball. He was hitting home runs every game and hit a ball at least 250′. Keep going. You are helping young players.
I like getting your emails. Thanks
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 systems. Minimum of 10-mph was added to exit velocity. What you say/teach works.
I have read this book. A couple times to make sure I understand the science. It has changed my daughters life. Literally. She was always a talented hitter, but after applying the principles in the book and her understanding them, she’s even better. Her metrics have gotten her several offers from college coaches without ever seeing her play a single game. She will now go to school for free. Literally life changing.
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.
I tried just the new bat grip this past week you outlined in the book with the top pointer finger off the bat and the bottom hand holding like a butterfly. Saw results immediately. One of my weakest hitters hit his first HR and it was a grand salami! He was so pumped. After the game he said he focused on that grip and it worked! Thank you so much for the detail. You have gotten my attention.
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 the field in front of it. It was the first time applying the new hitting mechanics when hitting live pitching and front toss. Though it was my only home-run that day, I had a few that hit the fence that were mainly line drives. I was mainly focusing on “showing the numbers” and ” hiding the hands” and then a few times trying a downward shoulder angle and hunching over during my swing (I think when I hit the home-run I had a downward shoulder angle).
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 I’m always looking to improve, gain knowledge, etc. I had zero expectations for this book. I actually thought I’d read a chapter and move on to another book. I figured this would be just another hitting book with all the same stuff. Instead, I couldn’t stop reading. For me, this book was packed full of great stuff that was new to me. I loved the links included in the Kindle version. I really enjoyed the stuff in the book that was not hitting related, too. I recommend this book all the time. It’s totally worth it even if you learn just a couple things or discover a few different ways to teach players.
