Jugs pitching machine models are top of the line

 The Jugs pitching machine line is probably the most well-known of all the pitching machines available today. The Jugs company makes a variety of pitching machine models that vary in price depending on which kind of budget you have to work with. Starting off with the high-end model, you have the very versatile Curveball Combo Pitching Machine. It is called the Combo because it will throw baseballs, softballs, and tennis balls rather than just one of them.

The rotational hitting philosophy of instruction

 Rotational hitting is a relatively new philosophy of hitting instruction that has caught the attention of many players and is somewhat debated due to its difference from the conventional hitting instruction of old. Made popular by former Major League ballplayer, Mike Epstein, the rotational swing is supposed to produce more bat speed as opposed to the more traditional "linear" swing. The whole theory behind all of this is that what the majority of amateur coaches are teaching and what all successful hitters are actually DOING is something completely different. Basically it is a way of teaching that closely analyzes the way the pros swing, and attempts to mimic that as much as possible. So what is linear hitting?? The linear swing is the way of teaching that has hitters taking the hands and feet straight to the ball in a "linear" fashion.
