Title: Baseball batting trainer

Abstract: A system and a method is provided for improving a baseball player's batting swing. Preferably, the system can be utilized to teach a player to swing with power and with a slight upstroke to increase the chances of getting a powerful line drive hit. The system includes a post upwardly extending from a support base. Preferably, the post is adjustable to increase or decreased in height to match the size of the player utilizing the system. A channel is attached at upper portion of the post and includes a means for providing resistance, such as bristles, that protrude generally upwardly from the channel base. A second similar channel with a resistance means is mounted above and facing the first channel such that there is a gap between the two resistance means. Preferably, the channels are rotatably mounted to the post such that the angle of the path between the resistance means can be adjusted to provide a slight increase in elevation that will result in a slight upswing by the player utilizing the training system. A channel support is utilized to fix the position of the two channels relative to each other. Preferably, the channel support is shaped to guide and direct a player's swing down and through the resistance means of the channels. Preferably the channel support includes a resistance adjustment that can increase or decrease the resistance on a bat passing through the channels.
