Get a grip on your swing! The Bat Jack Grip Trainer is the most powerful bat grip / swing trainer on the market.
This new hitting aid was designed by former pro baseball player and current pro hitting coach Jim Rickon. Over the course of his career, Jim has seen an epidemic in poor grip alignment that leads to poor swing paths and frustrated hitters.
Jim came up with The Bat Jack to give hitters the feel of a grip that maximizes bat control and bat speed, while keeping the grip in contact with the actual bat handle. When a hitter places his index finger onto The Bat Jack, the hand alignment on the bat is drastically improved. The bottom three fingers of the top hand are more engaged, providing a stronger hitting position.
Training with The Bat Jack can also help correct other hitting problems. Many players have found that when using the Bat Jack, their path to the ball became shorter and more consistent with a better slot position. The grip feels more controlled and powerful, because The Bat Jack forces certain fingers and muscles in his hands to work more efficiently throughout the swing.

How to Use It
1. Align onto your bat
2. Place your index finger onto the bat jack while gripping the bat
By positioning your index finger onto The Bat Jack, the bat is then naturally aligned into the strongest portion of your hand - the fingers. This professional-style grip produces unbelievable strength and control for maximum bat-speed and power within the swing.
By using The Bat Jack, the player's bat handle is brought out and away from the deep area of the hand between the thumb and index finger in the grip. This naturally engages the bottom three fingers of the top hand providing a stronger more controllable hitting position within the grip.
"I really like how simple and easy The Bat Jack is to use. It gives the hitter an instant, natural feel of where his grip should be on his bat. I also love how it helps with slotting the back elbow in the stance and during the "lag" portion of the swing. Simple, straight forward, and it works. I like it!" - Bruce Fields, Former Major League Player, Detroit Tigers and Seattle Mariners. Current MLB Hitting Coach, Cleveland Indians
