I have been the hitting and pitching coordinator for Harris-Stowe State University since 2016. Our statistics give you a sense of the impact I've had on the program and our rankings...

I've put together a piece that discusses what I'm working on with our hitters during the 2017 season.

My other clients include baseball and fast pitch softball coaches, instructors, and players, including MLB players, scouts, and coaches.

I got my start working with Andres Torres of the San Francisco Giants.

Andres Torres 2010 World Series

Andres Torres 2010 World Series

As I discuss in my various hitting diaries, I have directly worked with...

  • Mark Trumbo
  • Andres Torres
  • Tommy Pham

...and have consulted on the swings of...

  • Matt Holliday
  • Jhonny Peralta
  • Stephen Piscotty

My pitching materials draw primarily on my study of the pitching mechanics of Justin Verlander.

I'm most widely known for my...

Over the years I have expanded the number and types of products I offer.

Major League Clients

My major league clients include...

  • Mark Trumbo who led all of MLB in home runs for 2016.
  • Andres Torres who in 2010 helped the Giants win the World Series with a 6.3 fWAR season.
  • Tommy Pham of the Cardinals and put up 1.1 fWAR in 10 days while working with me in 2015.

Tommy Pham is shown below hitting a 431-foot pinch-hit home run during Game 1 of the 2015 NLDS between the Cardinals and the Cubs.

My experience with Andres Torres was discussed a number of times, including in Sports Illustrated.

Expensive. And Worth It.

My products draw upon my extensive direct knowledge of what (actually) works at the college and MLB levels.

What the best hitters and pitchers (actually) do.

Unlike most people who work off of grainy video taken off of Youtube or MLB.com, when I'm not coaching I spend the spring and summer on the road watching the best players play and videotaping them with my multiple high speed cameras.

For instance, during the 2016 season, I attended eight Justin Verlander starts in order to acquire video and still pictures for my upcoming eBook.

Less is More

If there's one thing I hear over and over again, it's that people are busy.

They want to help their players, but don't have weeks, days, or sometimes even hours to get up to speed on the best ideas about developing hitters and pitchers.

As a result, of late I've been following Mark Twain's lead. I now spend most of my time cutting my materials down to the bare minimum; the things that really matter when it comes to getting hitters and pitchers to the next level. For example, take a look at my...

However, be sure to check back often, because these pieces will continue to get shorter over time.

The Epidemic

The EpidemicThe past few years have seen what is starting to be regarded as an epidemic of injuries to pitchers. Elbows, in particular, seem to be failing at unprecendented rates.

I have been studying this problem for approaching 10 years, reading literally every journal article and textbook I can get my hands on, talking to doctors, and shooting and studying thousands of clips of pitchers.

I have come to a number of conclusions about what is happening and why, and discuss those conclusions at length in The Epidemic.

Access to The Epidemic costs only $19 and also gives you access to Throwing Mechanics 101.

The Epidemic can be found here.

Hi Coach,

I am Clay Council, a baseball fanatic, coach, & hitting instructor. My claim to fame is that I was the old man that threw to Josh Hamilton in the Home-run Derby at Yankee Stadium at the All-Star game in 2008.

I have been doing hitting lessons for over 30 years. Thanks to Chris O'Leary and his concepts for helping me to gain better insight and knowledge as to what elite hitters do that makes them great. I cannot say enough about the expertise that he has added to my hitting instruction.

Thank you for your Obsession, Knowledge, and Contribution to the Game of Baseball.

I highly recommend
Chris O'Leary.

Chris,

I have read your works and have your DVD. I used to show them to my college hitters and recommend your site. Often I have told many of my students that, "I would rather my own son take a lesson from Chris O'Leary than many of the guys I played with." Excellent work on describing the swing and best wishes to you! Keep up the good work!

Ron Wright

 

The majority of my time spent as a Div I hitting coach is spent with my guys unlearning what they think they know an have been taught their whole lives. Chris O'Leary has an excellent grasp of the high level swing and has an excellent filter to weed out the myths and get to the real fundamentals of the high-level swing.

I would recommend his site to anyone and have spoken with many pro guys who feel the same way.

Chris,

When I first purchased your program I was a bit nervous that I was wasting my money. Six weeks later, my nervousness has turned to extreme delight! Your depth of knowledge and research is exemplary. More importantly, you have the ability to convey every aspect of the swing clearly and thoroughly. My 11 year old son has been transformed in just 6 weeks! We have certainly put in many hours of practice in that time, but it is showing great dividends.

He has gone from hitting every ball straight down into the ground to driving the ball with considerable power and his confidence has skyrocketed!

The best part of it all is that he is beginning to understand the high level swing.

I am extremely thankful to have found your website.

Thank You!

Chris,

Thank you for your hard work and research. Your mid-season correction in my 12 year old's hitting posture was so basic but had a dramatic and immediate impact on his hitting for the balance of the season. The smallest kid was hitting better than the select players on his team after your correction, and his confidence soared. His biggest highlight was pulling a line drive down the LF line in the District Final game against the hardest thrower in the league. I highly recommend your client site to everyone. You are truly an expert.

Thank you.

Hey Chris!

Just to let you know that i'm a senior at _____ High in _____. I studied your site and have used most of the information on the site. What helped me the most was the Pujols and Andres Torres info.

I am 5' 7" 145 lbs and hit in the 4 hole for the Varsity team. Its funny to see the reaction from the other coaches to see the 2 and 3 hole players on my team bat before me and they're both over 6 feet. Then I walk up and hit the ball twice as hard. I was All Tourney Team this past weekend. And the talk of the new papers here.

Thanks for the valuable info.

Chris,

I just wanted to reach out to you and thank you for sharing your research and knowledge.

I was fortunate enough to play college baseball at The Ohio State University and minor league baseball in the Frontier League, and while I had some small successes as a player, I wasn’t prepared to teach all the intricacies of a high-level swing. While I struggled to teach my oldest son the correct approach to hitting, I stumbled upon your website and it is a site we frequent to this day. We are both very thankful for your approach and the solid research you have done to back your findings.

I have found your website and your Rotational Hitting DVD very helpful in educating the kids I coach as well as my own children. Your information has really helped dismiss many errors that have been passed on from generation to generation.

Keep up the good work!

Hey Chris,

Attached is a clip of my son. We have been a client of yours for a few years. Your information has helped me, as a dad and former college player, figure hitting out.

Too bad my dad didn't know this stuff.

I have devoured every word of your hitting webbooks many times over, and it's given me great certainty on how to teach my son the proper hitting mechanics.

The clip is of him this past weekend hitting a line drive about 270 ft in the air. He's only 11 years old, in the 5th grade and weighs 106 lbs. I have a clip of him hitting one 305 ft when he was 10 years old (no exaggeration, there were witnesses). I will send that one too.

Thanks to your influence he's in the upper portion of hitters in our state for his age bracket and he still has baby fat!

Thank you!

Dear Chris,

I want to thank you first of all for your hitting DVD. I have a 15 year old son that used your dvd to perfect his swing. To see him hit 450' bombs is a common place for him thanks to you. We took him to Florida State University for there Christmas camp in december and he really stood out. Mike Martin jr. had him stay over for some cage work after the other campers had left for the day. He came up to me afterwards and said ____ had a beautiful swing and unbelievable power. His first question was who was his hitting instructor. I told him about the Chris O'Leary Hitting 101 dvd. He ask me who Chris O'leary was and where did he play. I just gave him your web address and told him to look it up.
