CamWood Training Bats and One-Hand Trainers
CamWood Training Bats and One-Hand Trainers are the fastest and easiest way to teach the proper baseball and softball swing. Other heavy bats put all the weight at the end of the bat which causes a player to break down his mechanics and causes him to cast the bat around the hitting zone . With the CamWood Training Bats the weight is placed down by the hands.
This unique design has two great benefits. It helps the player by aiding him to drive his hands inside the ball simultaneously with making him stronger and developing bat speed and power.

CAMWOOD DRILL PRO
The dual tee design allows for multiple drills.
The CamWood baseball and softball Hitting Tees are the only tees that actually teach a player the proper bat bath to the ball. Unlike all other tees that just allow you to hit a ball, the CamWood tees are designed with a purpose. The Insider Tee, with its perfect rod placement, forces the player to keep the bat inside the ball. As you swing the bat inside the rod, the sweet spot of the bat is automatically put in line with the ball.
The Drill Pro Tee is the most versatile tee a player can use. Just like to the insider tee, it comes with the rod to teach the proper bat path. It also comes with two hitting stems, which allows the player to do multiple drills.
The Coach’s Guide to Hitting DVD is referred to by high school and college coaches as one of the most thorough teaching tools a player can use. It is designed to help coaches, as well as parents, teach the proper technique of hitting.
With help from 12 year major league player, Wes Helms, and Hall of famer, Tony Gwynn, the DVD breaks down the baseball and softball swing. It simplifies the hitting process through isolation drills that are done by college and professional players in a way that is easy to understand.

Sizing CamWood Training Bats is Simple
A player should always train with the same length baseball bat that he plays with. For example, if he hits with a 32-inch bat, then he should train with a 32-inch bat.
The extra weight is distributed in such a way that it is effortless for even an 8-year old to swing a 34-ounce bat. Think of holding a sledge hammer by the head rather than the handle. The redistribution of weight makes it seem much lighter.

Understanding a hitting zone.
A lot of people get "hitting zone" and "strike zone" confused. A hitting zone is the area a hitter creates with the path of his bat. It is the area in which the sweet spot of the bat stays in line with the pitch. The longer the player can keep the sweet spot in the hitting zone the more success the player will have. Hitting is not what you do when your timing is on, it's what you do when you timing is just off.
How does the CamWood Trainer develop the proper bat path?
With a traditional bat, all of the weight is placed at the end of the bat causing the hitter to swing in circular motion, otherwise known as casting. By swinging in a circular motion an improper bat path is created which causes the "sweet spot" of the bat to go out and around the ball. When the weight of the Camwood Trainer is placed by the hands, this forces the hitter to drive the hands on a straight line (hence the saying "Knob to the Ball"). This creates a linear path to the ball and keeps the sweet spot of the bat in the hitting zone for a longer period of time.
The diagram above illustrates a poor bat path. The hitter throws the barrel of the bat at the ball which causes a circular motion. This motion creates a small hitting zone (a long swing) thus giving little opportunity to make solid contact with the sweet spot of the bat.
The diagram above illustrates an ideal bat path. By leading with the hands on a line and letting the barrel of the bat follow naturally, the bat will stay in the hitting zone for an extended period of time. This extended time gives the hitter more opportunity to make solid contact with the sweet spot of bat.
