Major League Step for V-Flex

With opening day just around the corner, I'm tremendously excited about our upcoming season in the Major Leagues. After using V-Flex with several Cubs hitters during spring training in Mesa, AZ, hitting coach Chili Davis has decided to take V-Flex on the road. He knows increased spatial awareness and strike recognition skills are a premium competitive advantage at the highest level of the game because he's experienced it... His satisfaction with V-Flex came with the purchase of a complete set for the new cages at Wrigley Field. Chili utilizes both front toss and overhand techniques of training strike recognition with the VXB-4 and VXB-5. This variety of methods allows him to maximize the potential of his hitters swinging at strikes and taking balls. Other MLB organizations have taken a bottom-up approach to implementing V-Flex, but not the Cubs. They are starting at the top and plan on placing additional pieces at the AAA and AA levels next.

Chili's acceptance of V-Flex was somewhat accelerated by his previous attempts to develop a pitch recognition system of his own back in 2013. We were discussing implicit training during a conversation and he said, "Wait here, I want to show you my designs". In a few minutes he returned with a clipboard and his concept notes. One design was similar to V-Flex in appearance but differed in neurological function and process. He was on the right trail but very seldom do hitting coaches have time to study neurology and quantum physics. He repeated several times that I had beat him to the punch when it came to the design of V-Flex. His insight will pay off big time nonetheless.

Chili is one of the most grounded and innovative instructors I've ever met. Watching him train hitters with V-Flex was an "ah Ha" moment for me. Together, they are destined to change the course of hitting history.
