SPECIALITY CLINICS:

  • THROWING AND FIELDING: The ability to throw and catch the ball properly is at the root of the game... yet few young players can do this. Develop good habits to enjoy the game to its fullest!

  • TRANSITION TO BIG DIAMOND- huge jump leaning to play on regulation diamond from adjusted dimensions for pitching and baserunning, holding runners on, team play including backups and more!

    John Andreoli, former Sweet Swing players, uses his entire body in throw from outfield.(Note similarities to a pitcher following through allowing for maximum power and accuracy)
    "I was extremely fortunate to get the opportunity to work with Kevin O'Brien in the Cape Cod League. He taught me the fundamentals of hitting and helpled me to correct all of the flaws in my swing. I have used the same swing ever since then with more success than I ever imagined.

    During my time with the Yankees and Reds, I've worked with some of the best hitting instructors in the game--Lou Pinella, Chris Chambliss, Tony Perez, Davey Johnson and others. I consider Kevin to be as fine a hitting instructor as any I've worked with. He should be coaching at the Major League level."
