Attending the Sli Academy reaps immediate rewards. Steve and his staff cover all the basics of hitting mechanics: hands, hips, and shoulders – always emphasizing that the fundamentals of striking the ball, regardless of age, are constant. His innovative hitting drills along with his keen observation skills set the foundation for improving your ability to make solid and consistent contact with the ball. Aside from his obvious knowledge base, Steve also has an infectious attitude toward hitting – he wants you to develop a hitter’s mentality. And the payoff is immediate: In a recent national tournament, I went 10/10 with 6 HRs, 2 being grand slams, in one day. Your results may vary, but the benefits of Steve’s instruction come quickly.

Just wanted to thank you again for the instruction in Sacramento. A couple of my teammates called to ask what I thought about the academy. I told them what we went over, how we got measured going in and out, and that I was able to add 15 MPH to my exit speed just by implementing some tweaks that you pointed out. Was also able to finally determine my optimal bat weight by testing exit speed from three different bat weights. Something I’ve been wanting to determine for a while. Based on my improvements, I’m sure that the next time your academy comes to town you’ll see a couple of my teammates there.
