The HeavySwing Story

The Origins of HeavySwing

We believed that there was a total disconnect between the way players are taught to hit by coaches (i.e., keeping the hands "inside the ball") and the training equipment available on the market. For this reason, we decided to develop our initial idea with the goal of giving players a new and better way to train.

Taking the Concept to Spring Training

Based on the initial concept and design for a handle-weighted on-deck circle bat, the first HeavySwing prototype was engineered and built in early-2011. This model was brought to spring training in March 2011 for introduction and testing with the best in the game.

Not knowing what to expect, we showed the HeavySwing to several pro coaches and players in Florida and Arizona. The reaction was overwhelmingly positive, with coaches and players placing orders for the product on the spot. Baseball pros and hitting coaches immediately validated the HeavySwing concept and recognized it as a significant advancement in baseball training equipment.

From the Drawing Board to the World Series® in Less Than 10 Months

HeavySwing first appeared on major league and amateur baseball diamonds across the U.S. in 2011. The quick adoption of the product and positive response indicated that we were on to something special. In just 10 short months, the HeavySwing went from the drawing board to the on-deck circle of the 2011 World Series, used by Series MVP David Freese.

Bringing the HeavySwing Concept to Players Everywhere

After the company’s phenomenal success with professional teams, we’ve launched a full training system that includes handle-weighted on-deck products, handle-weighted one-hand trainers, and handle-weighted bats for live hitting drills with models available for youth, adult, softball and pro players.

We will continue to innovate and expand our product line, with our mission being to help players train more effectively and achieve their fullest potential.
