Are there any instructors who teach the HLP hitting patterns that Mercer Aces @merceraces, Richard Schenek @teacherman1986 or Les Nozzle @thelesnozzle in the northern atlanta suburbs? This is the techniques guys like Judge and Bonds use.
I don't know of any. I tried to get in on a clinic with Richard Schenek and he was a complete ass. Also had another guy from the HLP promise to work with my son out of town then when it came time, backed out at the last minute. What they teach is not earth shattering, you can do it yourself if you just watch their videos. Hitting is a natural movement. The more a kid thinks about it the more mechanical he gets instead of being natural. Bonds and Judge use the same techniques as 99% of professional hitters. They are not doing or teaching anything new. They just give things different terms or names then throws out questions instead of explaining it. Watch any of their drills, they always spin in the ground with their back foot. Watch 90% of MLB guys they go to their toe they do not spin on the ball of their foot.
