With The Zone you’ll know exactly where the sweet spot is so when you step in to the batter's box you're ready to crush it!
The Zone is a great baseball and softball training aid for hand-eye coordination and improved muscle memory. All hard wood construction, inside and out, gives it the feel in your hands of a regular wood bat. From its standard diameter wood bat handle, it maintains about the same diameter until it hits the barrel. Here, the section of the barrel where you want to hit the baseball (the sweet spot) is enlarged to a standard wood bat barrel diameter, scaled to the appropriate size for the length selected.
Designed solely for use with real baseballs for soft toss or with a less hard ball (wiffle ball, tennis ball, small plastic golf ball). It makes a perfect training tool indoors...even in a garage or a basement.
What length is right?
Just like with any wood bat, be sure to choose the length of The Zone that you or your hitter is currently swinging in his/her metal or wood bat.
