Wow. Bombers have been working.
No practices and no games for weeks. Who would have thought we would be able to see so much genuine baseball growth through this time? The players who have been participating regularly in our video coaching program have been working hard and it shows. The coaches are pleased—stunned really—by some of the absolutely huge strides we’re seeing with the players’ swings. In some ways, what we’re accomplishing couldn’t be done If you haven’t sent in your videos, please do. Next week will be our last week of hitting for the time being.
Thanks to all the parents and players for all the hard work. Here’s what’s new this week:
NEW VIDEO EPISODES
Episode 23: The Bombers Have Something to Say: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C7U5reXB8tA
Coach Matt Speaks for us all.
Episode 24: Weekly Video Challenge #4: https://youtu.be/ZoFXHpRjmfY
Thanks to everyone who sent in their swings in the first three weeks—we’ve broken down over 250 videos now. Players should check out the analysis provided this week and work on implementing the suggestions.
THIS WEEK’S CHALLENGE: LAST WEEK OF SWINGS. Work hard on implementing the tips in your last video and send your coach back a 2-3 second video of your new swing by WEDNESDAY, 13-May. The coaches will then assess the two swings side by side and tips and feedback via video.
REMINDER: FAVORITE PLAYERS: Send a separate video to your coach with short (under 2 min) video of each player telling who their favorite pro player is and why. The coaches will do these too. We’ve received videos from about half the players, but we’d like to feature every player in the club.

SNEAK PEEK AT UPCOMING FEATURES:
We’re going to do a mid-week video episode release this week. Look for catcher drills, a new fun challenge for Bomber families and additional videos.
SPECIAL SKILLS: We’re working on hitting club wide, but starting the week of 11-May, we will also welcome short videos of players working on special skills: pitching deliveries, catchers blocking, receiving and throwing, etc. Send those clips into your coach and we’ll break them down as well.
Thanks again and keep those videos coming,
