When it comes to instruction on long island, hitting or otherwise its tough. Not all players make for great coaches, but I have found that the more time the player had in pro baseball the better he not only instructed but the less ego you had to deal with.

So what I recommend is if you can find a person who has played in the MLB or at least double A, look him up. Look any instructor up on Baseball Reference. See what kind of career he had. See what kind of players he might have played with. Shoot see if the MLB team had sick talent in front of him that kept him down. Don’t be afraid to ask the person why he thinks he didn’t go any further. Guys who love the game wont mind the questions. I can tell you this. I have been around guys who have played two months in a minors. I’ve been around guys who have played nothing but independent ball. And also been around a few guys who have played a minimum of 8 years in the minors reaching triple A. I have to say the guys who played the longest and had reached the higher levels have always been better to deal with. They don’t ever seem to try to sell me on them or try to use gimmicks.

Frank Catalanotto A 14 year MLB Veteran with over a 290 lifetime batting average, should be put on the list as well.

Oreste Morrera, hit 240 HR in the minors. Played for the Dodgers for a couple of years. Works out of Baseball Player Magazine.

And I have been around a major leaguer who teaches the swing that looks nothing like the swing he used when he was playing. Just because he played professionally doesn't mean he knows or can teach your kid the right way to hit. Go online and look up all the hitting sites and hitting instructors. Most of the really good one's have never played professionally, but are used by the professionals. That says a lot...
