Hitting Coach from Hartford University (D1), Steve Malinowski
Coach Malinowski got his uHIT Certification in Fall 2020. Just afterwards, his Hartford Baseball hitters started uHIT Custom Training to improve their pitch selection. They raised their team OPS by +48 points using uHIT. You can learn more about those improvements from reading our detailed post on uHIT Academy (>> click here to learn more).
Malinowski learned from the uHIT Certification about how uHIT differs from all other hitting tools. He learned that uHIT differs from everything else because it grew out of the brain science on how people make quick decisions. It is not based on what one guru says, or on uHIT being made by a company that only does baseball apps. Instead, he learned from the uHIT Certification curriculum of articles (e.g., from the Boston Globe and Sports Illustrated), as well as interviews on MLB Network (e.g., with Brian Kenny), that the science behind uHIT is based on work that other scientists and engineers approved as valid and new contributions about how people make fast decisions. He also learned that uHIT is made by deCervo, a company that specializes in applying these results to many sports and professions beyond baseball (such as training hockey officials for the NHL or police officers around the United States).
Malinowski was able to apply this knowledge to Hartford Baseball’s fall training and with uHIT Analysis Services he was able to better connect Rapsodo Hitting data to decisions made in uHIT – and most importantly, how to coach a fix for his hitters when they went into a slump.
