Product Details


The GAPHitter is the most unique and versatile hitting aid on the market today. It was developed through several iterations and tested by numerous players and teams…from youth to pros. The GAPHitter allows players to hit a moving ball at all positions within the strike zone. A special Rod Carew ball is secured by Velcro to a patented Ball Attachment, which is attached to a tether suspended from a pendulum. The GAPHitter is placed behind home plate and the suspended ball hangs over the plate. The ball is pulled back by a person from the catcher’s position – then released. When the ball returns though the strike zone it is hit by the batter. (Note: the ball can also be swung into play by the batter if practicing alone.) Upon contact, the ball releases from the Ball Attachment. Pitch location can be varied up and down, inside and outside; plus curveballs can be simulated. Multiple types of balls can be used, including: baseballs, softballs, low compression balls, and others. Rod states, “The GAPHitter is the most effective training tool for developing and refining hitting mechanics I’ve ever seen. It’s far superior to a regular batting tee, as the moving ball increases a young player's eye-hand coordination - and helps advanced players hone their skills and practice situational hitting.” Unlike most hitting aids, the ball releases on contact. By doing so, it provides the batter instant feedback as to the direction, speed, and trajectory of the hit ball. This allows the batter, coach, or parent to correct imperfections in the batter’s swing. And, because the ball releases, it allows for game play. Also, every pitch is a strike, so a child has no fear of being hit by a pitched ball! The GAPHitter will revolutionize youth baseball and provide T-ball leagues with an excellent alternative to the stationary tee by providing children the fun and excitement of hitting a moving ball. Children learning to hit a moving ball will be better prepared for Little League, Babe Ruth League, Cal Ripken Baseball, and beyond. The GAPHitter is lightweight, requires no electricity, and can be used anywhere. It’s great for leagues, teams, or in your back yard. -baseball,training,aid,equipment,batting,
