The Stand In Drill

Improve Game Day Hitting, Timing and Tracking the Ball

The stand in drill

Target-specific baseball hitting drill


Standing in on a pitcher who is warming up is a great way for a hitter to improve his ability to see and track the baseball out of the pitcher’s hand all the way down the hitting funnel – and into the catcher’s glove.




  • Get a look at different types of pitches and their movements – slider, sinker, curve, change, knuckle, split finger, 2 seam fastball and 4 seam fastball.
  • Learn how to focus on both left-handed and right-handed release points and ball movement.
  • Tracking – track the baseball out of the pitcher’s hand all the way into the catcher’s glove.
  • Teach timing and rhythm importance – load, stride and foot down all controlled on the subconscious level.
  • Helps to gain strike zone recognition.
  • Learn how to aggressively take pitches – hold swing off at the last second.

LASER Hitting Factory. College Bound

Congratulations to Jack Rubenstein from the LASER hitting factory of Pace Academy. Jack is the first of many LASER prodigies to make the transfer from high school to college baseball, Emory University - Atlanta Georgia. Connected and explosive swing gives Jack a big head start over most college freshmen. Best of luck Jack and with a swing like that we're sure you'll have a great college career. PS, fantastic effort by the super coach Seth La Fera - guiding Jack over the course of the season. After viewing Jack's original LASER Strap video 3 months ago... the swing transition is remarkable. Jack hit with a 250 average and 0 home runs in 2016. In 2017 he hit close to a 350 average and 3 home runs.
