    Back on the airwaves with one of our own here at SBTV - the Hitting Coordinator for the Colorado Rockies Darin Everson stops by, grabs the mic and just rolls through some terrific hitting information. If you haven’t checked his stuff out before, here are the cliff notes: He is really good! The way that he can simplify information and drills and ideas is so impressive but his knowledge is something that we always want to dive into and pull from. Inside this show, expect another ‘take feverish notes’ episode with Darin detailing out specific drills that he thinks elevates development to perspectives as coaches AND players that will help us look at our training much differently plus taking some key concepts and buzzwords and cutting right through them for us! It’s a powerful show from one of the best teachers in professional baseball.
