VISION PEARLS TESTIMONIALS

Youth Baseball Coach

JOE WAKSMONSKI
HEAD COACH | RHINELANDER HS

The Vision Pearls were very helpful for our cage work. We generally used the Vision Pearls in one of our cages as a station where they call out colors. Each day a different color would be the "Take" color. I believe using the Vision Pearls kept our players mentally engaged during their cage work. During regular cage work, players will often get into the habit of swinging at anything and everything and with the Vision Pearls our players were aware of taking a pitch and even when the pitch is in their hitting zone.

Baseball Catcher

During our Illinois State Championship season, our players used the Vision Pearls on the Tee and in the cage every time we hit. The players love the fact that they can find a point of focus on the ball and really concentrate on that point by using the Vision Pearls. The different colors and markings make many of our every day drills even more demanding and effective. The Vision Pearls have so many applications that any player, at any level will find them very useful and effective.

Baseball Players

We used the Vision Pearls with our players in Tee Drills, Toss Drills, and Short Toss Batting Practice. We also use the Vision Pearls for defensive fielding drills. We have the infield, including pitchers, call out the colors when fielding ground balls or catching when covering a base.

We used the Vision Pearls in our hitting cage for balance and timing in Tee Drills.

Baseball Catcher

The players who are using the Vision Pearls for batting practice and other hitting drills have notably improved their concentration and their batting swings. While going through the different batting drills, our players are better at keeping their heads down, their chin to shoulder, and seeing the baseball overall. Plus, they enjoy the concentration work due to all the drills where we include Vision Pearls.

Baseball Players

When a player is able to pick up the pitcher’s release point, identify the pitch, determine whether to swing or not, and see the baseball deep into the hitting zone, that is when he is at his best. The beautiful thing about the Vision Pearls is you can take the existing hitting drills you already have and add the focus element to it. Enhanced focus will help kids immensely once they get onto the field of play.

We used Vision Pearls to teach our players to hit the top half of the baseball. It’s been great as it really gives them a focal point

MIKE FINE
HEAD COACH | 10 YOUTH TEAM

Our team benefited from using the Vision Pearls as we used the Vision Pearls in a 3-pronged approach in our hitting drills – Tee Drills, Flip Drills, and Live Batting Practice. Our coaches believed we had a very positive outcome as there was measurable impact in terms of the boy’s productivity at the plate. Simply getting the boys engaged with a specific set of activities, as compared to a generic, ‘keep your eyes on the ball’ approach was very instrumental. I would highly recommend using Vision Pearls to anyone involved in baseball. It was very seamless to bring into our practice routine. I know the boys as well as me and my other coaches had a lot of fun with it.

FAST-BALLS TESTIMONIALS

Youth Baseball Coach

RICH BENJAMIN
FORMER HEAD COACH | JUDSON UNIVERSITY

We used the 2-Seam and 4-Seam FAST-Balls with all pitchers. We value the FAST-Balls instant feedback during all lead up drills and flat ground work prior to their pen work. They liked the instant feedback and felt it helped them ‘lock in’ more on throwing with a purpose. We have also used the 4S-PP FAST-Balls with all position players. The 4S-PP FAST-Balls provide instant feedback concerning ‘backspin’ of the baseball. This has been most helpful with our catchers, who had a tendency for their ball to fade right on throws.

Baseball Catcher

We used the FAST-Balls in our youth camps and noticed the younger players have taken to these baseballs very well. Their focus is now on getting the correct spin as opposed to just throwing to a person. This is obviously what we are looking for to help encourage the proper throwing mechanics.

Baseball Players

Our pitchers are using the FAST-Balls in open gyms this preseason. The biggest strength I have seen thus far is that most of our pitchers are able to correct their 2-Seam fastball with the proper arm slot. This was easily identifiable with the color coding of the 2S FAST-Balls.

LES HANSEN
HEAD COACH | ILLINOIS SPARKS 13U TRAVEL CLUB

FAST-Balls are quality training aids that help a positional player to perfect his grip on the baseball. When utilizing the proper grip, the player can get the baseball to release from his hand with the proper spin to insure accurate flight. The best part about the FAST-Balls approach is the immediate feedback the player gets every time he throws it. By watching this ball travel to his target, he can quickly make adjustments to insure proper technique.

The Vision Pearls and FAST-Balls training aids gave us an extra edge this year. Our hitting and pitching improved greatly during the course of the year which ended ultimately in winning a coveted Arlington Heights championship!
