"The Core Program" Instructional DVD is the latest and greatest from Epstein Hitting. With a run-time of 57 minutes, this DVD covers the foundational drills Jake Epstein uses with all his personal students (Little Leaguers to Big Leaguers). Throughout the DVD, Jake works all the drills with an 18-year old college-bound player so coaches and parents alike can follow the system easily and efficiently. There are also slow-motion video analysis breakdowns of Jake's students split-screened with MLB players for comparison purposes. The side-by-side comparisons greatly enhance the understanding of the swing and the drills utilized throughout the program.

DVD Menu Sections:
  • Impact Bag Drills
  • SwingAway Drills
  • Small Ball Machine and ImpactBat Drills
  • Video Analysis Swing Breakdown of Small Ball Machine Drill (with student and MLB player)
  • Live Hitting Drills

The "Advanced Drills" Instructional DVD is the perfect addition to our "Core Program" DVD. With a run time of 35 minutes, this DVD covers the more advanced isolation drills Jake Epstein uses with all his personal students (Little Leaguers to Big Leaguers). The drills found in this DVD were created to help coaches and players increase their potential by creating more power, making more consistent contact by staying on the pitch plane as long as possible, problem-solving common problems like bat drag and hand drop as well as learning to adjust to off-speed pitches.

Please note: this DVD should NOT be purchased before the "Core Program" DVD as it builds upon the foundational mechanics found in the "Core Program."

BOOK "The Mental Side of Hitting: A Guide to Out-Thinking the Pitcher"

Learn to create the proper mental plan when going to the plate based on previous at-bats, who's on deck, what pitch has the pitcher been getting over, what inning are you in and much more!  There is a reason why some players are great...they have the 51% percent edge when anticipating pitches.

While suspicion remains about his brawn, don't discount [Barry] Bonds' brain in pursuit of Hank Aaron's home run record.

Excerpt from the Denver Rocky Mountain News:

Rockies' catcher Yorvit Torrealba recalled a conversation with Bonds as the two sat on the bench during a game against the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2003. Bonds predicted pitch-for-pitch how he would be attacked. A few moments later, Bonds was up to bat.

The sequence played out exactly as Bonds had predicted it would, down to the back door slider he lifted to left field for a home run.

"He came back to the dugout and said, 'See I told you,'" Torrealba said. "I couldn't believe it. I have heard of a guy guessing right on one or two pitches. But five? It was amazing."
