Kevin Paxson & Bat-Speed w/ The PaxBats!

 

So I walk into the hitting facility to start my hitting lessons for the day and not an hour goes by before I hear, ” hey what is that? It looks pretty cool”. They’re talking about the PaxBat. I use it for all my lessons.

As you know, I’m a huge advocate of getting your “required reps” in the batting cage. The hitting cage is the hitter’s laboratory, where he can experiment with new things to find what does and does not work. I’m a fan of the PaxBat because it provides immediate feedback. It save you time.  If you’re not crushing the ball, there is probably something wrong with your swing path and or approach to the plate. Easy Peasy.

All this being said, I’m really excited to have the creator of the PaxBats (Kevin Paxson) on the AoB EXPERTS show today to share how he got the idea for the design, how to best utilize it for increased bat-speed and what results to expect if you stick with it for a committed period of time. It’s not a magic pill…but it will be a welcomed tool in your tool-box if you allow it to be.

Many thanks to Kevin Paxson for sharing his time! He’s a high-school coach and has a family so much obliged Kevin. You’re the man.

Kissimmee Sticks and John Madden w/ Art of Baseball Experts

 

Oh yea!!!! Another wood bat contest give away! Many thanks to John Madden for sitting down with us for a sec to talk to us about the Kissimmee Sticks baseball bats! I have to be honest…I was really impressed with the fact that the Kissimmee Sticks are all hand crafted and provide the same select grade quality of wood that is available at the Major League level. Not a lot of wood bat companies can say that.
