)-- The Salem State Women’s softball team started using the SwingRite Home Run Hitter at the beginning of their 2010 season. The team said that using this tool in their training helped give them the confidence they needed to excel on their way to the program’s first ever Massachusetts State Collegiate Athletic Conference (MASCAC) title.
The Lady Vikings went 35-10 that season while batting a collective .292 average with 13 HR and a .401 slugging percentage. Five of the team’s starters had batting averages over .330 and accounted for 8 of the teams 13 HR.
Two of the team’s best batters, Jess Baird and Amanda Scola, saw dramatic improvements of their batting averages the year the team adopted the SwingRite Home Run Hitter (+.060 and + .040 respectively). Scola was a career .277 batter coming into the 2010 season in which she hit a career high .339 while slugging .172 above her average prior to the season.
The SwingRite Home Run Hitter is a swing training aid that uses a patented “click” sound to train the batter of their release point in order to improve hand position at the point of contact. It is proven to increase swing speed and create correct muscle memory. The Salem State Lady Vikings say the SwingRite Home Run Hitter helped propel them to their first even conference title in school history.
