Hitting Foundational Course
The Hemo Hitting foundation teaches players a hitting philosophy developed by MLB veteran, Scott Hemond.
This online hitting course helps players of all ages and skill levels!
I teach you an unconventional & revolutionary physical and mental approach to hitting.
It requires the hitter to execute isolated swing movements with rhythm, control, and continuity.
The constant rhythmical “rocking” allows us to slow it down and get everything working together.
It decreases stress, increases muscle memory, and creates a flow that fosters better timing and synchronization.
SLOW IT DOWN to SPEED IT UP!
By the end of this course, you will learn the foundational skills of a unique hitting philosophy to take back control.
My comprehensive hitting course provides you with a hitting foundation to build upon.
It teaches you to analyze your own swing with simple checklists to make corrections.

Importance of the Head
If I had to choose to do 1 thing correct to give me a real chance to be successful at the plate, the head is it.
If your head is really good, it’s impossible for everything else to be bad.
Walt Hriniak, former MLB player and Hitting Coach, always said to me, “You got one bullet in your gun, kid. When you got no rhythm and you got no timing, you got one bullet in your gun. You better be great with your head.”
When you are lost and lonely at the plate, your head will get you through.
When Mr. Nasty is up there throwing darts, your head will get you through.
In this course, I give you the tools to stop ‘hoping’ and take control of your game.
The foundation of my hitting system involves using a barrier (heavy bag) to:
- Isolate key movements.
- Restrict improper movements.
- Enforce proper movement through drills and repetition.
I listed a few of the heavy bag benefits below.

“He’s the best catcher I’ve seen in college baseball.”
“Having been in baseball all my life (including 30 years coaching in college), Scott Hemond is the best catcher I have ever seen play and had the opportunity to coach…now he is a Coach. As Coaches, we are teachers and Scott has the innate ability to teach and instruct. Baseball has 3 phases (offense, defense, and baserunning), all of which Scott did extraordinarily well as a player. What is more important is that he has a “feel” for all 3 phases. I would trust my own kids to have Scott Hemond teach them the game of baseball!”
“My experiences with Scott were fantastic! His knowledge and enthusiasm for the game made it fun, yet very informative. He pays close attention to the details, while breaking them down step-by-step. I would recommend him strongly to any baseball player looking to improve their game.”
“One of the best prospects in the Oakland system is Scott Hemond. He was an All-America catcher at the University of South Florida and has an arm that has been likened to Santiago’s and Alomar’s.”
"Hemo has been helping me with my game now for many years. In that time, I have learned so much about the game. I don’t know where I would be today without Scott. The energy and passion for the game that he brings to the table everyday, along with his professional experience, makes him one of the best instructors available. Anyone wanting to elevate their game should attend the Scott Hemond School of Baseball."
“Hemo has helped me with baseball since I was 12 years old. Every off-season I look forward to working/coaching with him and stepping up my game both mentally and physically. His positive energy and passion for the game along with this big league knowledge makes him one of the best instructors/coaches you can get.”
“The Scott Hemond School of Baseball has been training me since I was 11 years old. I’m now 17 years old and I’m committed to playing baseball at Daytona State College. The instruction I have received from the SHSB has shaped me in every aspect of the game and has not only made me a better player, but a better person. I wouldn’t be the person I am today without the Scott Hemond School of Baseball.”
"Scott Hemond is a special coach. SHSB is a special place to develop your skills and learn about the game of baseball. Not only do you get better at the game, your baseball IQ goes up when attending the Scott Hemond School of Baseball. I am the 15th ranked outfielder in country. I would not be where I am without Scotty H, the knowledge I’ve gained, and people I’ve gotten to associate myself with at the SHSB!”
