"I have been working with Crystl Bustos for 10 plus years and she taught me this style grip when we first met. Being able to see it, feel it and fix it is what coaching and teaching is all about. The grip, in my opinion, is key as to being able to control the bat, and The Bat Jack offers a simple, effective way of placing the hands on the bat and keeping the bat out of the back of the top hand. In my opinion it allows control to release the bat angle with much more power and accuracy. The hands can lead the bat head with much better control and release the bat head to the ball using the wrists. It's the same grip used by carpenters to drive a nail, and we want to drive the ball or nail it!"

"I really like how simple and easy The Bat Jack is to use. It gives the hitter an instant, natural feel of where his grip should be on his bat. I also love how it helps with slotting the back elbow in the stance and during the swing. Simple, straight forward, and it works. I like it!"

"I like the way The Bat Jack trains your hands to grip the bat correctly, giving you maximum bat speed and whip. The reps you get with the feel of The Bat Jack allows you to make adjustments to your grip and swing quickly. This tool is certainly useful for players of all ages and at every level of baseball."

"With today's players overemphasizing pulling their hands and knob inside the ball, they have the lost feel for the most important part of the bat, THE BARREL! The Bat Jack gives an immediate consciousness of the barrel in the top hand. This allows the hitter to be in control of the ENTIRE bat, shortening their swing and eliminating up to two feet of travel distance to the ball. A great tool for players at every level!!!"

"What a practical, simple concept with unbelievable results! Our players have been using The Bat Jack during off-season training sessions and can't get over how effective this tool has been. The Bat Jack enables the players to put into practice what we have tried as coaches for years to explain and get results from, now we can. I have no doubt this product will stand the test of time and become a common application for all our players for years to come."

"I was blown away at the way my swing was affected by The Bat Jack. It helped me with my grip and my back elbow position. Using it during my one-hand hitting drills has really been helpful. The Bat Jack really works."

"I’m Dan Pike and I work as the hitting coach for the Buckeye Heat 94’s. I have been testing The Bat Jack during hitting lessons and used it with this team at our last tournament... The players could feel the difference and were excited about using the product. They were using it during the games and were hitting the ball harder. We set a team record of 17 hits in one of our games and the kids now all are excited about this product"
