Batting Lessons at Work

Pitching lessons teach players proper pitching mechanics to increase velocity and prevent injury. Topics covered through instruction and drills include the basics of throwing, balance, body control, stride, release point and follow through.
Batting lessons help players improve their hitting mechanics. We teach the finer points of hitting, such as balance, stance, approach, point of contact and follow through. Hitting is as much mental as it is physical, so we also work on learning to attack the ball and have a plan for each at-bat.
Fielding instructors lessons teach players the skills necessary to improve their defensive games. You can’t win if you don’t have a solid defense! Learn the proper mechanics of the fielding stance, footwork, balance and the importance of using 2 hands, along with proper throwing techniques.
Running and stealing bases are critical offensive skills that can make the difference between a single and an RBI. We work on the fundamentals of how to run bases, take leads, steal, and read the pitcher to give yourself the competitive edge. At DG Sports Performance, we work with players to understand how to not just run hard–but to run smart.
