About Charley Lau Jr.:
He greatly expanded on his father’s legendary teachings by clarifying and dispelling the myths and misunderstandings of the hitting system. He broke the swing down in to digestible pieces and developed drills that took away flaws and developed a much more improved swing.
His reputation grew rapidly when one his students was the 1st overall pick in the 1993 major league baseball draft. His name? Alex Rodriguez. A-Rod struggled in his first year at the major league level, hitting a miserable .232. He went back to Charley Jr. to fix the flaws in his swing. Rodriguez responded with a monster year in 1996 by winning the american league batting title with a .358 average, 36hr’s and 118 rbi’s. This was the highest increase in production in baseball history.
Chaz continues to sprinkle his magic on the bats of all hitters — from little leaguers to girls fast pitch softball to high schoolers, college, and minor to major leaguers. He has become the most sought after hitting coach in the country.
He continues to teach privately to major leaguers and players of all ages.
