About Building Rome Series
Building the Future
Rome was not built in day! Rather, it was laid out pillar by pillar, in a step wise progression, beginning from a solid base of stone and working up.
Confidence building in sports and life is the mission of Building Rome Series.
Now, using slow motion video, in conjunction with high definition video analysis tools, there is easily accessible “proof” of how the best players in baseball and fastpitch softball perform fundamental hitting skills. Through the improved ability to 1) look closer than ever before at swing mechanics and, 2) share information with others, we are witnessing dramatic changes in “how” and “what” coaches are teaching.
Teach the player “how” various hitting fundamentals work together to create a “chain of energy”. When players strive to clearly understand “how” and “why” various swing options affect this energy chain, they can become their own hitting coach.
