To our SwingAway Customers,
When the SwingAway was introduced to Professional Baseball in 1996, there was a tremendous BUZZZ around the League. This machine was perfected with the guidance of Lou Piniella, Lee Elia and Jay Buhner all with the Seattle Mariners, as the Head Coach, the Head Hitting Coach and as an All Star Player respectively.
Today, more Pro Players use the SwingAway than ever before. It is the Only established, recognized and accepted hitting training machine in the MLB. Today's players grew up training on the SwingAway. Many of todays professional players started training on the SwingAway in High School, College, the Minor Leagues and finally in to the Big Leagues. Pro Players now just expect a SwingAway to be available for them to train and practice with at every stadium.
We receive numerous calls each month from former MLB Players; Many of them are Legends of the Game.
