Anybody out there using the Total Control Balls for hitting? If so what kind of results are you getting with them?

I watched a couple of teams use them for warm ups at nationals. They seem to be the real thing, all the teams that used them were very good hitting teams. Our team will be purchasing them for this year.

We use them to help with their streangth, you really have to push the ball with the bat on contact. It's the exact same thing as having the girls hit basketballs or soccer balls without the injuries of having the bat pop back and hit the girls. I really like them especially the baseball version, it also forces them to see the ball, being smaller than the softball version.

I recently acquired one of these balls in a park when a soccer coach (practicing w/her team) brought it to us during warm-ups. I didn't know what it was so I tossed it to my DG to hit; which immediately brought up the question. Are these balls safe for use with high-end bats? or should they be used with practice bats?

Based upon this forum, I plan to get a few for my DG's, but I just want to know how others use them, basically which bats are used with these balls. Thanks. :think:

Both my DGs have been using the total control balls for the last 3 months. They have made a huge difference in the power department. Helps them use their lower half of the body to help swing through it.. and swing all the way through.. My 14u DG swings the new Stealth and my 12u DG the Demarini. The balls havent damaged the bats at all.. They use them about 4 times a week on average.

Thanks for the response, my sensitivity is that my DG has gone through a couple of composite bats (although 100+ games each); based upon that, and the scuttle about composite bats, we are going with the new Anderson bat. I hope to see some better ROI (and longevity) compared to the composite bats that we have used. I also would like for her to be able take full advantage of proven equipment and drills.

Saw these in Moline, a Texas team was using them. Seemed to be an impressive hitting tool, and I have ordered some for my DG.
