The Insider Bat is a baseball/softball hitting aid that promotes proper grip, hand placement and proper swing path before, during and after contact is made. The unique design allows for only one way to contact the baseball. It is best used with a static ball placed on a Tanner Tee but can also be used with specific front toss or soft toss baseball or softball hitting drills.
The Insider Bat is designed to let the hitter know when a flaw in the swing occurs. It will be impossible to get the flat portion of the Insider Bat squared up on the baseball or softball unless the hands are palm up/palm down. If the sweet spot of the Insider Bat is struck flat against the ball during the swing, proper palm up / palm down position has occurred.
The Insider Bat is designed for the beginner, but it can certainly work for a high school or even pro hitter looking to learn more about his personal baseball swing. The purpose of the Insider Bat is to repeat a specific swing path off the tee so repetition can create muscle memory.
