Now you can perform the same hitting techniques, strategies and drills that Alex Rodriguez uses every day!
In this sensational DVD from Championship Productions, New York Yankees hitting coach Kevin Long reveals techniques and strategies for becoming a successful hitter.
Coach Long covers six keys to becoming a great hitter:
Watch as Coach Long takes A-Rod through a batting workout to fine tune hitting mechanics with soft toss and tee drills using a short and regular bat. These drills focus on balance and staying tight to your core to get your bat through the hitting zone quicker.
In addition, Long and A-Rod sit down and discuss the key techniques from a hitter's perspective. This section includes strategies to develop the best swing possible; scouting the opposing pitcher; guessing on pitches; batting practice for success; and off-season work.
What makes this DVD unique is that you can see how these drills are used at the Major League level and how they can be adjusted to work at any level: youth, high school, collegiate and professional.
Long goes through a number of errors that are common among younger hitters - and how you can correct them. Among the problem areas covered are: Stride in - where the batter's hips won't get through the swing; Stride Open - which mostly occurs left handed batters; flexed front side; turning in - creates long bat path; and leaning forward.
Long closes with a Coach's Q&A session. He covers a number of topics including: Absolutes of hitting, strategies for left- vs right-hand pitchers, scouting reports, two-strike approach, hitting when you're ahead in the count, identifying pitches, getting over the fear of being hit by a pitch, and more.
This is the workout that helped A-Rod to one of his best statistical seasons as a pro in 2007. Get help with your swing from one of the top hitting instructors in the world!

Excellent!! I coach 12U, this DVD will be my most used resource. He uses his son a HS player and A-Rod the most elite hitter. I can use this resource for the least developed & the most advanced hitter and gives me a tool to direct to the future. I have several hitting DVD's & I recommend this DVD 100%
Coach Long does an excellent job of presentation in this video. I like how he stops and gives comments and reasons why he does things. I enjoyed the FAQ portion, and the portion where he was working with his son. I learned more from those two sections than I did with ARod. I understand that ARod is a big help in promoting this video and why it was first, however the other sections probably should be seen first. I am always skeptical buying videos done by pro players/coaches, but Coach put a lot of effort and planning into the content and presentation.
Quality hitting video. Kevin Long and ARod do a good job breaking down mechanics and drills. The Q and A session was very insightful.
I am a young high school baseball player who is always looking to improve my swing. This video was great help for me, i learned a ton about hitting. thank you for the insight
Great video! Kevin Long does a very good job of explaining the swing and great drills to improve the swing. I enjoyed the part where Kevin and Alex sit down.
Excellent discussion of mechanics and why Kevin Long's way works combined with Long and A-Rod's commentary on the mental and physical preparation make this video a must have for any hitting guru
