Hitting

When you train with TheDeadEye, it will train you and force you to consistently do some of the most important techniques and fundamentals in hitting a baseball.

 

1)     Trains you to keep your head still and on the ball

2)     Trains you to keep your eye on the ball-not the same as #1

3)     Trains you to keep your shoulder in and not pull it

 

When hitters pull their head and/or shoulder they lose site of the ball. TheDeadEye trains the hitter to keep the head still, keep your eye on the ball until contact is made. If you pull your head

or shoulder while training with TheDeadEye, you will not

see the ball.

 

Important-TheDeadEye should be used in Tee Work or Soft toss. 
Should not be used with live pitching or pitching machines.

 

Infielders

TheDeadEye can help train infielders in fielding and throwing accuracy. One of the biggest mistakes most infielders do when fielding a ball is they don’t keep their head down. With TheDeadEye, it trains the infielder to keep their head down in order to field the ball. With the vision restriction, if the infielder does not keep their head down, they won’t be able to see the ball. With throwing accuracy, TheDeadEye condensing the target area where the infielder is throwing (most of time 1st base) thus creating a smaller area to focus and concentrate on.

 

Important-When infielders are training with TheDeadEye to improve their fielding, the only drill that should be used is having someone standing 10-15 feet away and rolling the ball on the ground so the infielder can get in front of the ball and get their head down. It is not necessary to take grounders by someone hitting from home plate to the infielder (For Safety Purposes). It is about the fundamental and technique in order to create the good muscle memory to get in front of the ball and keeping the head down.

 

Outfielders

Throwing accuracy to the bases from the outfield can be enhanced by training with TheDeadEye. TheDeadEye condenses the target area where the outfielder is throwing thus creating a smaller area to concentrate and focus on.

 

Important-When outfielders are training with TheDeadEye to improve their throwing accuracy, the drill should be limited to either the outfielder just throwing it up themselves or someone standing 10-15 feet away and soft tossing the ball up 10-15 feet (For Safety Purposes).

 

Pitchers

Having control of your pitches and being able to place the ball where you want it and throwing strikes is the most important function of being a pitcher. It doesn’t matter how hard you throw or if you have a nasty slider or curve ball, if you can’t throw it where you want for strikes. Training with TheDeadEye is going to train you to be able to be more accurate.  TheDeadEye condenses the target area where the pitcher is throwing, thus creating a smaller area to concentrate and focus on.

 

Catchers

Being able to be accurate when trying to throw runners out is one of the most important aspects of being successful in throwing runners out. Training with TheDeadEye is going to train you to be more accurate by condensing the target area you are throwing to, thus creating a smaller area to concentrate and focus on.

 

 

A few things to remember about why you need TheDeadEye:

               

1)     TheDeadEye is helping create the good muscle memory from your head down through your body
and now add the same with your vision

2)     Doing the little things CAN make you better, but doing the little things consistently WILL make you better

3)     See it Better, Do it Better

4)     Technique/Fundamentals+ Effort + Talent beats Talent alone every time

5)     If you’re not as talented as your competition, Technique/Fundamentals+Effort
always gives you a chance

 

Even if you don't use TheDeadEye to train with for a specific skill in any sport,  it is still a GREAT training tool to improve your focus, concentration and hand-eye coordination, which is SO important in any sport. (See some of these drills under the video tab with the FASST Performance video).

 

TheDeadEye should not be used in games or game like situations and should not be used with live pitching or pitching machines. You should not wear TheDeadEye while trying to catch a ball being thrown by another player or person.  Also please reread the Important statements on this page.
