Hitting Camp



Fastball USA is the Place The World is Turning To in Order to Unleash Hitting Power


Players From all over the World including Taiwan, Australia, Canada, & The Netherlands Have Attended Our Camps.

Players have attended from All Over The USA come to Chicago to attend our events. Texas, California, Florida, New York, and everywhere in between.
I literally wrote the book on exit velocity. ("Creating The 100mph Hitter") This advanced hitting camp will take each hitter through his personal keys to creating more exit velocity, more distance, more often. My Advanced Hitting Boot Camp Includes:
Evaluation/Testing - We begin with creating clarity for every hitter on what their current strengths and weaknesses are right now. Bat Speed, Exit Velocity, Ball Flight, Timing, Ball Spin, and a game performance audit and our 7 point video evaluation.
Training - Simple and practical training methods that are easy to understand and easy to put to use. Complexity broken into simple pieces.
Personalized - Giving you a personalized program to follow even weeks after the camp is finished. Every hitter is different!
Includes - Hitting Mechanics, Timing, Mindset, Strength/Speed/Power, along with building a game ready hitter.


I never asked a coach what a players batting average was ….. Never!

The greatest hitters in the world prioritize hitting the ball hard … PERIOD!

I believe no matter how pretty a swing looks, nobody really cares unless it creates results.   Game Time Results.  

The 2 Things Your Hitter Needs To Do More Often!
1. Hit The Ball Hard
2. Hit the Ball With Good Ball flight


• Increasing Your Avg Exit Velocity (Hit it harder)
• Increasing Your Avg Distance (Hit it Further)
• Increasing Bat Speed With Swing Efficiency
• Improve The Ability To Be ON-Time
• Become a Game Ready Battle Tested Hitter That frustrates pitchers and increases your confidence at the plate!

ONE WEEKEND CHANGED HIS SWING! I saw a tremendous change in Tristan’s swing as did he. He was thrilled as well.

I really feel the work with stacking the arms was a tremendous help to him as he is double jointed and those elbows seem to twist and turn all over. Those exercises let him feel how it should be throughout the wing. That was huge in my opinion. He and I are both excited about it.

Secondly, I wanted to tell you that your son is such an upstanding young man. To put in the time with others and help them at that age is impressive to say the least. Thanks again!"

OVER DELIVERED!I could not have walked away any more impressed. You over-delivered and out-did yourself. As a former colligate player and current high school coach with over 17 years of coaching experience, I've never seen anything quite like the work you do with your hitters at Fastball USA.

What impressed me most is your ability to create an engaging environment that promotes deeper learning and assessment. You are a Master Educator. My son has been learning to implement your practices for about 2 years now. The results can not be denied.

His first trip to Fastball he was a 50mph guy ...He is now a 70mph guy! Make no mistake, the process hasn't been an easy one..and it takes an incredible amount of time and work, but the work you guys do at Fastball USA gets results and is second to none.

You've helped him become his own swing coach. He know exactly what his swings should look like and feel like, but more importantly, he has a process that is differentiated for him and he knows that process and how to adjust it better than anyone!"

— Mike Lessard


AMAZING IMPROVEMENT!We just wanted to say thank-you for the great hitting camp that Bryce attended on the weekend. The improvement we saw in his swing in just 3 days was amazing. The video analysis was great as it showed him exactly what he needed to change and improve.

The visualization with the mat that showed launch angle really helped him understand this concept. With all the motivation he left with I feel confident his batting will continue to improve. Thanks again to you and your family."

— Dave, Shari and Bryce Meyers


CAN'T STOP TALKING ABOUT IT!I just wanted to say thanks again for this weekend's explosive hitting camp.

My son Joaquin had an awesome time attending the camp and cannot not stop talking about it. We came there with the intent of becoming an explosive hitter and regain the confidence he once had at the plate.

Your instructional approach married with your ability to articulate and breakdown the 4 parts of the swing are second to none. I wish all coaches had the same mind set as you.

I look forward to coming back for some BP prior to the opening of the Spring season."

— Ronnie Williams


THE BEST WE'VE EVER SEENThank you very much for putting on this hitting camp.

We have had a lot of 1 on 1 personal hitting coaches and this has been by far the best we have ever seen. Not only did Cole get a lot out of all the drills and instruction, but I learned a tremendous amount as well.

The chronological order of the classes and the drills made it easy to follow and understand the “method to the madness”. I think the greatest benefit we took from the course is the video analysis with the targeted drills to improve where Cole is lacking.

Cole is excited about the new plan to improve his swing in all phases."

— Joel Sheppard


HITTING CAMP WAS EYE-OPENING TO USWe really appreciated how you took the time to explain the different components of the swing, making it easy for our son to understand the ‘why’ of what you were teaching him inside each component. He especially appreciated how you used video examples of major league hitters to make the learning process very real. The best part, however, was how you took video of his swing at the beginning of the weekend, and broke down each of the swing phases, pointing out for him where he needed to make adjustments in each phase in order to realize his full potential.

At the end of the camp, he left with specific drills he should be doing in order to make new muscle memory for each correction so it becomes natural and he won’t have to think about those adjustments once the season begins. You did truly amazing work with our son and he left feeling like he has a concrete, customized training plan to make improvements this winter!"

IMPROVED EXIT VELOCITY IN 3 DAYSI wanted to thank you for putting on a great camp. My son and I talked about what WE learned after each lesson breaking down our differing views and game planning how it will improve his hitting this year and for years to come. He improved 3 MPH exit velocity using your teaching in 3 days. Saying he is stoked to put the lessons to work to see the number jump more would be an understatement.

My son has always idolized Josh Donaldson leg kick but come game time he was always late on the pitch. Now with your coaching, with his leg kick and natural stride forward, he knows how to get on time with the pitcher no matter the speed he is throwing."

— Mike Otis


THE SWING ANALYSIS WAS MY FAVORITE PARTThe swing analysis was my favorite and helped me see my opportunities to improve . I really liked the connection ball drills. They helped me feel how I needed to load my scap and keep my bat in the window."

— Jaser Arms


NEW KNOWLEDGELucas definitely walked away with some new knowledge that he will incorporate into his swing and we both feel it was time and money well spent and he had fun doing it!

I also appreciated the focus on proper mindset which was inspirational and always good for young ears. Thanks again. We will be in touch for some video analysis after he has worked the drills you gave him.

TOP PHILOSOPHIES AND MINDSETSI know my son will be a better hitter after some camps but few can say that they taught him how to live his life better. The philosophies and mindsets that Mike Ryan teaches are exactly what the top of the line companies are teaching their employees currently. Don’t tell my son, but I’m not betting on him playing in the big leagues.

I am betting on him being a great leader, husband and father thus this camp was perfect for him. One added benefit is he had a game after Day 2 of the camp and hit his first homerun in two seasons. So I think there may be some good hitting instruction happening also 🙂 "

— Brian McCasey


JUST WHAT WE NEEDED!He enjoyed the classroom portion as well as the hitting drills and workouts. That weekend camp changed his swing for the better. It has given a driven kid even more drive to work on new techniques. He has seen an increase on his exit velocity already!!

We can’t thank you enough for providing more tools for his belt. Anthony is looking forward to working with you in the future."

— Tony


THIS CAMP GIVES YOU THE TOOLSComing into this weekend, I felt like my kid was a good hitter that may be able to learn a thing or two from this camp. After listening to Mike, and engaging in video reviews of not only my kid hitting, but how professionals hit, it became pretty clear that he needed a considerable amount of work!

Mike was able to help us both learn so much more about some of the basics of a swing that I have never heard from any other coaches. His perspective is unique, and he is able to teach it in a way that makes it simple to make improvements that will no doubt pay off in the long run. This camp will definitely give you the knowledge and the drills to help build your child into a stronger hitter!"

— Andy Kuglitsch


A WORLD-CLASS EVENTMy son is 11 years old and we have been to numerous baseball trainings and camps. Mike’s hitting camp will forever change your perspective on hitting. Mike and staff create a warm environment that help parents and players celebrate the fact that honest feedback is the starting point to improvement. You will leave with a specific plan tailored to your players areas of opportunity."

The weekend is great for your player to be exposed to different mindsets and players from outside their immediate circle of influence. I was skeptical when I signed up, but was pleasantly surprised after the weekend.

— Matt Kuhnau


AGGRESSIVENESS, CONFIDENCE, AND SPEED INCREASES IN ONE CAMP!Just wanted to say thanks. My 10-year-old son attended your Explosive Hitting Camp over Christmas break. The improvements in his aggressiveness and confidence were obvious by the end of camp. He showed gains in both his exit velocity and bat speed!!

We hope to be back soon."

— Christian and Chace


THIS CAMP CHANGED THE WAY WE APPROACH HITTINGI want to thank all the staff at Fastball USA for an excellent explosive hitting camp. I was a little hesitant about how far we had to travel to attend the camp, but I can tell you it was the best money spent. Mike provided us with all the tools we need to achieve our exit Velocity goal of 100. More importantly we are leaving with a mindset that we will not give up on our goal.

Thanks, Mike, for the hospitality you have an awesome family. Rover always gave us a mean warm welcome with a wagging tail. This camp changed the way we will approach hitting."

— Mike White


A FANTASTIC EXPERIENCEAlex learned quite a bit! We feel he will benefit greatly from the swing analysis and the drills. We are excited to see his progress as he implements your explosive hitting program. Alex was particularly impressed with the Samurai and jump-back drills.

We would highly recommend your program to anyone wanting to improve their swing. learn some great drills and have fun!"

— Robin and Alex Rainer


OUR THIRD CAMP!I want to thank you and everyone at Fastball USA for the hospitality shown to everyone who attended last week’s Explosive Hitting Boot Camp.

This was the 3rd time my son, JT, had attended your camp and we have never been disappointed. Your ability to break down the “baseball swing” into a few key components, while explaining the “why” and providing custom work outs/drills to help your child reach his dream are unmatched. We look forward to attending future camps at Fastball USA."

— Scott Rink


ON A MISSION TO HIT 95MPH!What an incredible week! Hayden learned so much about himself as a hitter. He is ready to put your plan into action and get 1% better every month. Before he arrived at the camp, Hayden didn’t believe it was possible to reach an exit velo of 90 or possibly even 100 mph. But after hitting almost 87, and listening to your mindsets, he is now on a mission to reach 95 plus mph over the next year or so."
