Jim has a solid understanding of the swing and much deeper understanding of the physics involved as well.  I have personally talked hitting with him on many occasions and would feel very comfortable having him give lessons in my facility. I would urge you to take the time to sit down and talk with him. I think you'll find he'll be a great help improving your swing.

I have spent a lot of time discussing baseball and hitting with Jim Booth. I know that he understands the details of how top Major League players swing the bat, and he knows how to teach it. If you want to improve your game, I recommend that you enroll in his training classes.
