From the first viewing it is apparent that all of Woodsy's talents fused from years of experience as a player, coach, and teacher have coalesced into this exquisite teaching video. His easy going manner as well as his encouraging and supportive style provide a lucid and detailed description of how to hit a baseball. He understands kids; he knows baseball and he grasps the fundamentals of how we learn. He breaks the process of hitting the ball into discreet parts, that one can practice with a child both at home and on the ball field. From the batter's stance, to seeing the ball, to the step, the swing and the follow through; Woodsy clearly explains these basic principles describing exercises that will make them second nature and help any child hit the ball more often and with greater confidence. My son has thoroughly enjoyed the tape. It has helped me to work with him in a more constructive and supportive manner, and both his hitting and his confidence have improved. My only wish is that there had been such a tape when I was a kid! - Nils Nichols, New York City, New York
Just wanted to let you know how much my husband and son are enjoying your video. My husband thinks it is awesome!!! He actually was not interested in watching it at first. He thought it was a Mother/Son type video. I watched it with my son and then told my husband about a couple of the drills. He was intriqued, watched it, and now is so glad he did! " My husband and son use the DVD twice per week. Every Tues. and Thurs. evening, they watch a few segments of the DVD and go out in the back yard and do those particular drills they just studied. -Stephanie Cronin, Jacksonville, Florida
Bobby, received the video and spent the evening with it. Teffific instruction. Probably the best, most practical, simple, and helpful of any I've seen for any sport...and I've had a lot of them. Tremendous help for this senior softball player, who wasn't too shaby before. We are going to the World Senior games in October..... I'll be ready, thanks to you! - Ron Greeno, Sacramento, CA
Dear Bobby, I wanted you to know how much we enjoyed your video. My son Noah was struggling at the plate and I needed something to help him. It was wonderful! He's 12 and never really had any formal instruction on how to hit a ball.The video broke it down for him and me and we grasped the concept beautifully. He definitely makes it look easy. Toward the end of his tournaments he was getting intentionally walked a lot, much to his dismay. Again, thank you for such a truly valuable learning tool. - Caron McBreairty, Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina
