The Ball Yard has been training hitters for over 18 years, and has become one of the finest hitting facilities in the nation. Since 1998, many MLB players have come to the Ball Yard to fine tune their skills and add their knowledge and experience to our training. The Ball Yard has also provided training for some of the top hitters in college and professional softball. The Ball Yard is privileged to have hosted hitting forums with MLB and MILB managers and coaches, college baseball and softball coaches and hitting instructors, and other associated specialists in hitting and training. Ball Yard training incorporates all of this knowledge and experience into the foundation for the instruction for all of our clients.

Proper hitting starts from an athletic move to a strong balance position. The swing starts from that position, generating a long path to extension which allows the bat to get into, and stay in the zone longer. Proper techniques improve timing and pitch recognition and increases effective contact and power. But the vast majority of hitting instruction (at every level) completely contradicts the proper body movements and swing mechanics. Hitters are often taught bad techniques like "stay back", "pivot (squash the bug)", "swing down on the ball", "hips before hands", "barrel to the ball", "flat bat", "let the ball get deep",- all of which compromise the hitters efficiency and ability to perform.

The Ball Yard staff is dedicated to working with hitters to develop proper athletic moves and mechanics which will allow them to take their game to a different level. Hitting is a process, and that process begins at the Ball Yard.

The Ball Yard also schedules clinics for coaches and hitting instructors where attendees work hands-on in an interactive environment to integrate new techniques and ideas to promote the development of players in both baseball and softball. Private clinics are available. Contact the Ball Yard at 818 718-2898 or by email at ballyard6@gmail.com for more information
