Richie came up with the idea of the Sweet Spot Bat while trying to eliminate the long swings of his students. The Sweet Spot Bat has been used in lessons since 1996 and has produced tremendous results and improvements in the swings of his students. The Sweet Spot Bat is used by professionals as well as up and coming professionals because it WORKS!
Richie Smith – Founder and CEO….Here’s a question for you ? How many hitting instructors do you know have developed a single MLB Player taken 1st Round of the Draft?
