McLean high school's top hitters engaged in a practice session designed by the Research and Development coaches.

The session emphasized decision-making skills while also rewarding successful hits. The setup included using dual hack attack machines with various pitches to simulate game-like conditions.

The focus was on external factors and competition rather than technical or mechanical aspects, with additional timing work done in the on-deck circle.

Last day at work for this guy. 🤝

Jake will be starting a new position as strength director at a training center in Indiana next week. Jake grew tremendously in his role as Sports Performance coach under the mentorship of Director Brian Kownacki. He exemplified professionalism, attention to detail and was able to relate to every player he coached.

We wish him the best and look forward to watching him excel in his new position!
