The StanceCheck iZONE is used by Major League Players and was created by Major League Coaches!
Jorge Polanco of the Minnesota Twins (2019 MLB American League All-Star Starting Shortstop) hitting with the StanceCheck iZONE Training Aid!
Jorge Polanco, is a switch hitter, he trains with the StanceCheck iZONE to make sure his eyes are pre-set and in line with the pitcher from both sides of the plate!
Why Use The SanceCheck iZONE Training Aid?
- iZONE, with its specially designed nose-piece, will train your stance to have your head and eyes in line with the pitcher, when both eyes are in line with the pitcher/release point or your visual target the nose piece will disappear from your sight. Having both eyes lined up will improve your ability to detect velocity and see spin.
- The first time hitters use iZONE they will realize in their current stance, both eyes are not being used to track the ball.
- Most hitters often use a stance with their head turned in a way preventing them from using their back eye to see the pitcher’s release point.
- The iZONE’s precise design gives instant feedback and trains you to get your head and both eyes in the best position to see the ball, detect velocity and pick up spin sooner!
Checking Your Stance With The StanceCheck iZONE!
- Put on the iZone like you would eyeglasses, and rest the nose-piece firmly on the top of the bridge of your nose.
- Get in your batting stance.
- While in your batting stance, close your lead eye (eye closest to pitcher).
- Adjust your head so you can see the pitchers release point with your back eye.
- When the pitchers release point is visible with just your back eye open, then open your lead eye.
- The pitcher should now be visible with both eyes.
- Your Stance is now in Check!
