Hitting Instruction With A Metric Advantage 


Welcome to the future of hitting instruction.  The recent talk in professional and college baseball is around launch angle, exit velocity, and other Metrics; but what does that mean?  How do you know what are the correct numbers?  How do we measure it when we are training?  What if I told you we could not only measure all of your hitting metrics, but interpret them for your specific hitting style and help you make the adjustments you need.  At Cove Sports Academy we combine a state of the art hitting simulator with Coach Gatti’s (and his trainers) proven hitting method. We call the combination of these two powerful hitting tools BLAST (BALLISTIC ADVANCED SWING TECHNOLOGY).  Coach Gatti has been on the cutting edge of hitting for Long Island for more than two decades.  His methodology is similar to what MLB and college coaches are currently teaching.  For more information about Coach Gatti and his thoughts on hitting, see a recent article in Axcess Baseball by clicking his picture to the right.  Then look below at a video of what our BLAST (through HitTrax and other technology) system can do for you.

What Is Launch Angle?  

Per MLB: Launch Angle represents the vertical angle at which the ball leaves a player’s bat after being struck. Average Launch Angle (aLA) is calculated by dividing the sum of all Launch Angles by all Batted Ball Events.
