Instructors for this email course: Rangers' Hitting Coach Chase Lambin and Ranger's infielder Doug Bernier
These ideas are from the Lambin Hitting System. Chase Lambin is a Texas Rangers minor league hitting coach.
You won't find Lambin's material online anywhere else (as far as I know).
This is the actual system Chase uses when working with his Rangers players. He shared them with me personally and gave me permission to share them with you.
I've spoken with many, many hitting coaches over the years, but Lambin's system really stood out for identifying the important things and for simplifying them into attainable goals that every hitter can work toward.
