Online Baseball Hitting Training Now Available

Ryan Basham and Basham Baseball are proud to announce the launch of a brand new online baseball hitting training platform called Hitting Made Simple.

Introduction to HMS

The project started about 3 years ago when Ryan began filming many of the hitting drills, ideas, and information learned over his decades of playing, coaching, and instructing. Since then, the project has grown and evolved, and become a comprehensive, complete hitting training system. Hitters of all ages and skill levels can benefit from Hitting Made Simple. It’s also the perfect resource for a parent or guardian looking for guidance on how to train your son or daughter in a more effective manner.

The Perfect Addition to In-Person Hitting Training

Basham Baseball also had current clients in mind when creating the program. It would be a great addition to the training of those who are already in-person students at Basham Baseball.

“As the Hitting Made Simple website began to take shape over the past year, I started to realize how much of an amazing enhancement it was going to be to our in-person training. The most common question I’m asked when a lesson is finished is, ‘What should I work on between now and our next session?’ Usually, I’d suggest an area of focus and a couple drills to the student. But now, if the student has a membership to Hitting Made Simple, they can receive very detailed and comprehensive recommendations, and the information they need will be right at their fingertips!”

Ryan Basham, owner of Basham Baseball & creator of Hitting Made Simple

Hitting Made Simple Membership Features

HMS courses feature video, text, journal questions, note taking, and end with a course quiz. Take notes and always know your progress, as both are stored for you as long as you are a member. There are 7 unique courses (Hitting Coach Crash Course, Approach Course, Adjustability Course, Mechanics Course, Timing Course, Vision Course, & Mental Game Course). There are duplicates of each hitting course so that a parent/coach/helper can take the same course as the student, and keep their progress and quizzes separate.

Drill Finder
On our Drill Finder page you get instant access to 90+ hitting drills & 20+ dry drills featuring examples of hitting students of all ages. Filmed in HD with professional video and audio equipment, each drill is explained in detail with examples of good and bad reps. If you’re looking for a specific drill, search for a drill by name or use the filters listed to quickly find a drill that fits your needs. Options include balance drills, timing drills, plate discipline drills, solo/independent drills, team competition drills…and much, much more.

Swing Issues
We’ve identified the most common swing issues among hitters of all ages. On our Swing Issues page you will see examples of each issue. We’ll teach you how to use video to identify them. Then you will learn the common symptoms of each issue and receive corrective coaching cues for each. Finally, you’ll be provided with a hitting progression specifically designed to correct the issue.

Hitting Plans
Included are three different hitting training plans. They are the Foundations Plan, In-Season Plan, and Off-Season Plan. Each plan features a different format. The Foundations Plan is for students of any age wanting to start with the basics. The In-Season plan, based on recent game results, suggests drills to help with recent struggles. The Off-Season Plan helps hitters middle school age and above ready for the season. The system stores all course progress as you work through each plan.

Strength & Conditioning
Instant access to two beginner workout plans and two advanced strength training plans, each featuring videos of all exercises and the ability to track your reps, sets, weights, and progress. The plans and exercises are designed and coached by two certified and highly regarded strength & conditioning trainers.

Direct Communication
Using the website’s communication system, students can send direct messages, including links to video of their swing. Furthermore, all communication will be stored for later reference as long as you are a member.
