I have been coaching for 23 years and have attended 100’s of seminars on hitting over the years. Out of every clinic and every seminar that I have attended, no one has ever once said, “would you like to know how Edgar swings? how about Barry? Arod? or Jr?” “It wasn’t until I came across Mike Epstein that I began to comprehend what hitting was really all about. I may not agree with the teaching system Epstein uses, but I can honestly say that he is truly a pioneer and has been an instrumental influence in my coaching career, and for this I am sincerely grateful.
