Dan - A Great Coach


Dan - A Great Coach
My wife, my daughter and I had been eagerly anticipating my daughter’s first lesson with Dan, her new batting coach. Of course, we heard how good he was. Our next door neighbor spoke glowingly of Dan’s expertise as a batting coach for girls.
For the first lesson the three of us ( my daughter, wife and I) were nervous about how this arrangement would work out. Would she respond to him, and could she relate to him so they could develop rapport so needed between coach and student? Would his rotational hitting style be the framework from which our daughter could expand her hitting and start driving the ball on a consistent basis? Practicing after the lessons were just as important as the lessons themselves. Would Manteee apply his style? Our concerns were soon answered.
After the first lesson, I knew, that Dan was the man. He listened to our daughter. He spoke to her and not at her. I could see that the relationship was developing between my daughter and her coach. She was following his instructions.
After a few weeks, I could see improvement.


Her bat was making that solid sound hitters love to hear when they sting a ball. She was hitting in her league games with more authority. Driving the ball to the outfield. I could see her being much more confident. She is talking doubles and triples for the first time. I am thankful, appreciative and impressed for her
In my opinion if you or your son or daughter is interested in excelling as a hitter, having the right batting coach could make a huge difference. The time spent one on one developing her swing and stance has made my daughter a much better hitter in as little as six weeks.
Do you think Ty Cobb was getting batting tips?
