Coach Jim is awesome…my boys really took well to his hitting lesson; called it “fun”; and, keep asking me when we can go back to Coach Jim (I’ve signed them up for the 6 lesson package). Both boys…using different approaches taught to them by Coach Jim…have shortened their swing, and increased their power. Best hitting lesson we’ve been to.
