“I have been using the SWING AWAY since I was 10 years old and still train on it today as a PRO. The REASON is BECAUSE IT WORKS. Training on this product will force you to become a Better Hitter PERIOD!!”
Bryce Harper – Washington Nationals Phenom
COACH HENZE & MYB ENDORSE
Every once-in-awhile, I am blessed with the opportunity to try out a piece of baseball equipment that I can, wholeheartedly, recommend to any baseball player/team. The SwingAway batting trainer is that and much more…
I am not the only guy that recommends this product either… EVERY Major League Baseball team owns at least one!
It is the most efficient hitting training aid for the batter to get the maximum quality swings in a shortest amount of time. The Swing Away provides the “Feel of Hitting Live Pitching” plus it allows the batter to position the ball anywhere in the strike zone. The batted ball will never be out of control and will strike the net in a way so the batter can see the trajectory of each ball hit. The ball is safely but quickly returned to its pre-set position within 3 seconds providing instant feedback to the hitter and/or coach. The hitter will be trained through repetition and muscle memory to develop the perfect fundamental swing while learning to hit any pitch location to the appropriate field with increased power and confidence.
Coach Henze’s Son
After putting together my Swing Away, my son started using it right away! He was able to take hundreds of cuts without chasing balls around the back yard. He was able to work on balls all over the plate. Best of all, when you hit with this tool, you are getting a “real-feel” of the ball. There is some tension built in as you hit the ball. Hitting baseballs or wiffle balls on a tee or soft toss does not give you that feel.
I credit the Swing Away (along with my son’s determination) with helping my son feel more confident at the plate. After being somewhat shy at swinging the bat during games, he became much more comfortable hitting swinging at pitches during his at bats in games.
I, in all seriousness, think this is one of the top two hitting tools in all of baseball. In my opinion, the only other one that compares is the Insider Bat.

SWING AWAYS IN PROFESSIONAL BASEBALL
When the Swing Away was introduced to Professional Baseball in 1996, there was a tremendous BUZZZ… around the League. This machine was perfected with the guidance of Lou Piniella, Lee Elia and Jay Buhner all with the Seattle Mariners, as the Head Coach, the Head Hitting Coach and as an All Star Player respectively.
Today, more Pro Players use the SwingAway than ever before. It is the only established, recognized and accepted hitting training machine in Major League Baseball. Today’s players grew up training on the SwingAway. Many of today’s professional players started training on the SwingAway in High School, College, the Minor Leagues and finally in to the Big Leagues. Pro Players now just expect a SwingAway to be available for them to train and practice with at every stadium.
SwingAway receives numerous calls each month from former MLB Players; many of them are legends of the game. However, the most surprising calls they get are from former MLB Pitchers who want to purchase a SwingAway System for their children. This re- enforces the fact that our SwingAway really works to make players of all ages better hitters, thus better baseball and softball players. Swing Away, as a company, is extremely proud to continue to be successful in doing something very good for the game of baseball.

The Patented SwingAway Hitting Mat replicates the inner portion of the batter’s box, featuring an official size home plate and will allow the hitter to “visualize” where to connect and drive the pitched ball. The mat is marked for both right and left handed hitters and numbered baseballs showing the “proper contact points” plus directional arrows to show where to drive the pitches that are inside, outside, or down the middle. The Swing Away Hitting Station combined with the hitting mat will train players of all ages and skill levels to hit the ball where it is pitched, pulling the inside pitch, going opposite field with an outside pitch and driving the middle pitch right back where it came from. The SwingAway and SwingAway Mat combination will show you the direction and the trajectory of the hit ball plus the Swing Away will train the hitter to hit hard powerful line drives to the proper field for any pitch location with a short and powerful compact swing.
SWING AWAY NET & TARGET ZONE
The SwingAway Net and Target Zone will help you visualize the direction and trajectory of each hit ball. You can isolate training to work on quick hands, compact swing, and strong follow-through. Your torso can work to develop power with quick repetition of true baseball movement. Your legs and hips will develop the muscle feedback and confidence to take with you into the game.
Pitch-Back – With booms and tethers disconnected, the net works well as a Pitch-Back or Rebounder for fielder training (it can be tilted back or forward for pop ups and grounders).
