Swivel Vision For Hitting
“Keep your head on the ball. You’ve got to hit it first, then look where it goes. People get in trouble when they look for where the ball’s going and they haven’t even hit it yet.” – Mike Trout
One of the most common flaws with a hitter’s swing starts with their vision. Swivel Vision was developed to train hitters to see the ball better and visually stay on the ball longer. Their ability to focus on the task at hand improves their ability to hit the abll more consistently. What's more, the increase in focus leads to an improvement in hand-eye coordination.
Swivel Vision trains hitters to focus and use their optimal field of vision (both eyes) to track every ball from initial release through the point of contact. By cutting off the peripheral vision, Swivel Vision provides instant feedback which doesn’t allow for hitters to pull their head and still see the ball while they make contact. They will quickly learn to correct that bad habit.
With repetitive training, it will become a natural habit for hitters to utilize binocular vision (both eyes) and track each pitch properly to become more successful at the plate.
Swivel Vision For Fielding
One of the many issues that fielders face when charging a tough ground ball is the natural human reaction to pull up too early. Fielders need to make the play, and they tend to rush the process, which leads to errors — and ultimately allows runs to cross the plate.
Swivel Vision blocks the lower field of vision for exactly this reason. While training with Swivel Vision, the athlete is forced to keep the eyes down and on the ball, continuing through the play with full glove extension and body squared.
