My son did a Hittrax camp and has been seeing Jeff for private hitting lessons. Jeff helped him find the right bat and has improved his swing. The trajectory of where he hits the balls was a big problem for him. My son has seen different trainers over the past several years and my son says that Pinkman Academy has really helped him the most.

The Pinkman Academy is a home for baseball and softball players who demand results from professional training and not just take batting practice or throw bullpens.

Tip Number 3️⃣: Do the Extension Drill to work on keeping the front elbow up post-contact, creating a palm-up/palm-down approach that delivers a more powerfully elevated hit.

Coach Jeff Pinkman shares his 4-tip series on how to stop rolling your hands when hitting. “Rolling over” results in too many ground balls and/or weak pop-ups, while maintaining a stronger position through contact and extension generates maximum power and control.

Tip Number 2: Do the Split-Grip Contact Drill to work on elbows staying bent to contact with the top hand down and the bottom hand up.

Coach Jeff Pinkman shares his 4-tip series on how to stop rolling your hands when hitting. “Rolling over” results in too many ground balls and/or weak pop-ups, while maintaining a stronger position through contact and extension generates maximum power and control.

Hitting for power starts with a strong approach to the ball. In this video, you can see Caroline working on keeping her elbows bent at contact—this helps her “punch” the ball while staying compact, vs. casting 🎣 her arms out and losing force.

Using the PVC pipe, she attempts to place the top of the pipe on the ground. This can only be accomplished by keeping both elbows bent and using her back hip and core to drive toward the “ball.” An additional benefit of this drill is that, when done correctly, it naturally helps hitters achieve the proper leg position (front knee straight, back knee bent, knees driving together).

Questions? Let us know!

Marucci CatX Series

Some ❌-citing news… the Marucci CatX series arrives at Pinkman Academy today! Stop by this weekend to check them out. ⚾️

❌ About the CatX:

⭐️ Optimized Barrel Profile: more evenly distributed mass of the ring-free, multi-variable wall design across the entire barrel for a wider, more consistent sweet spot
⭐️ Sting-Dampening Technology: designed for a smooth, solid feel during contact by adding the optimal amount of liquid-gel in the k**b to reduce and absorb vibrations like never before
⭐️ Tightened Production Tolerances: allow barrel diameters to be built to the maximum limit, creating more surface area and higher overall performance
⭐️ One-Piece Alloy Construction: clean, consistent, traditional swing feel
⭐️ Precision Balanced Barrel: produces a lower M.O.I. for precision and control
⭐️ Balance Point: moved ~1” closer to athletes’ hands for faster swings

Also available: CatX Connect and CatX Composite.
