We’re preparing this program for the Overland Park location.

The MVP Machine, formerly called Project X, is a program initiated and designed in science. It works based on the Human Response System. For KC Hitter, that is patented technology.

The MVP Machine program incorporates HittersCODE, Gamesense, Rapsodo, EV Liquid Analytics, and potentially Hit Trax technologies. Our patents include a good deal of this technology. 

The MVP Machine sessions meet four times a year. The 2020 schedule will be posted soon. 

  • Better timing: Reading the pitch type and initial ball flight within about 20 feet of the release point allows hitters to make better swing decisions and better swing adjustments. In other words, better timing.

  • Pitch recognition is not a calculation; it is an association. What you see out of the pitcher’s hand associates with pitch location, velocity, and movement. It comes from thousands of plate appearances but can be accelerated with proper training. 

  • Swing at strikes, not balls. You develop plate discipline by recognizing the pitch early. This is how you achieve selective aggressiveness. You recognize a good pitch to hit and because you’re visually prepared, you don’t miss it. Be the type of “selectively aggressive” hitter that pitchers hate to face. 

  • Confidence comes with preparation. Step into the box feeling like you have seen that pitcher, or one like them, hundreds of times.

  • Swing mechanics are only part of the story. Pitch Recognition testing shows if a struggling hitter’s problem is not “seeing” the ball”. Do this before changing swing mechanics and creating a slump.

  • Improve offensive statistics: Early pitch recognition improves success in the box. Hitters with greater pitch recognition walk more, strike out less, chase fewer pitches out of the zone and have a higher slugging percentage.

  • Track performance: Individuals and coaches can track improvement, see strengths/weaknesses and compete against their teammates or other users.

  • Opponent preparation: Film your own pitchers or opponent pitchers to train for future games and custom drills.
