UPDATED 1/25/19 3:15 PM: The Falls Aces will be the first program in the nation to go through the bat fitting process, partnering with Axe Bat to help them further design the process for a nationwide roll out.
The Falls Aces are excited to announce that Jeff Leach, a prominent hitting instructor and Manager of Hitting for Axe Bat, will be onsite at the Launch Pad training players, coaches, and parents early this February.
Coaches and parents will have a chance to learn more about bat fitting, while players and coaches will learn more about the art of wrecking baseballs – with axe handled bats preferably – in a separate session.
The fitting session will be unique, as technology will be used to allow each hitter to measure which bat produces the best outcome – leading to the opportunity to have better in-game performance.
Falls Aces Coaches will also be instructed on more advanced ways to ensure the correct bat is in each hitter’s hands, as well as additional hitting instruction offered by Jeff.
Falls Aces families will receive information via email on how to take part in this great, free, opportunity.
Jeff Leach is the Manager of Hitting for Axe Bat. He works with amateur, college and professional baseball teams to help their hitters find the best bat for their swing.
The 2018 American League MVP Mookie Betts and the 2017 World Series MVP George Springer are amongst more than 60 hitters who use Axe Bats in Major League Baseball.
Previous to Axe Bat, Coach Leach was Director of Instruction for D-BAT in San Antonio. In 2015 he was nominated for national instructor of the year by D-BAT Sports. He is sought out for his ability to develop high performing hitters of all ages and ability levels.
“My goal as a coach is to boost a hitter’s confidence by developing their skills and their approach. I encourage aggressive swings that produce line drives.”
His high school players have earned All-District & All-State honors in Texas, and have earned scholarships to nationally ranked college baseball programs. Since 2013, his players have committed to play Division I baseball in the SEC, Big 12, WAC, Conference USA, Southwest Conference, Southland and American Athletic Conference.
A native of San Antonio, Coach Leach played baseball at McMurray University in Abeline, TX as an outfielder. He lives with his wife Brittani, and their 4 children: Sydney, Carter, Cooper and Cash.
