What Others Say About Us

  • I have learned a lot about my swing from Mr. Stiner, especially how to use my entire body for the best results. I have learned to hit with more power since being taught at Hitters Edge. The most beneficial thing to me is to be able to see in slow motion on video as he breaks down your swing so I can see what I was doing wrong.

  • Rick Stiner has been instructing our son Devin since he was 12 years old. Since working with Rick, Devin’s hitting percentage has increased each year. Rick has taken the time to understand Devin as a person as well as a hitter. Because of that interest; Devin has developed a great respect for Rick and tries so hard to follow through with all of Rick’s advanced instruction. Rick’s instruction is top notch and I don’t foresee having anyone else work with Devin on his hitting; especially now that he's entering high school. In our opinion, Rick Stiner’s hitting instruction is as good as it gets!! Definitely time and money well spent!!

  • Rick does a great job using video analysis to identify weaknesses in a player’s swing then apply specific drills to correct those weaknesses. The player is taught how to “self-analyze” his swing. In addition, Rick also works with the player to improve the mental approach to hitting If you want your son to be prepared for high level travel baseball, to be a key member of his high school team or be in a position to play baseball in college, I HIGHLY recommend working with Rick.

  • Rick does a great job of working with kids to improve their skills as well as help them understand the mental approach of hitting. Where Rick does a great job is allowing the kids to see and understand the adjustments in their swing. Any major college today utilizes video as a resource to break down swing mechanics. Where Rick’s knowledge comes in is his understanding and breaking down the video. He then comes up with unique drills to address minor issues in swing mechanics.

  • Coach Stiner is the best hitting instructor that my three sons have worked with, and the best that I have been around in ten years of coaching youth and travel baseball. His approach is consistent but also tailored specifically to each player’s needs. Not only does he make a personal connection with each player, he is awesome at diagnosing problems and correcting them with specific drills and instruction. Rick is a great communicator and my boys really enjoy working with him. Not only has Rick worked with my sons for over a year, he has worked with 2 select teams that I have coached. Rick Stiner helps players become better hitters, period! I have recommended him many times and will continue to do so.

  • I wanted to say thank you for all that you have done to instruct my son, Nick, over the past couple of months. As the Director for Sports Medicine and Sports Performance Center, I am always looking to hire the very best instructors who have the training and experience to positively change an athlete’s neuromuscular circuitry, thereby vastly improving overall athleticism and production on the field or court. The approach you take at the Hitter’s Edge is very similar to our approach, thus your innovative teaching methodology immediately caught my attention—I had to see it in action! My son, Nick, has always been a good hitter, but consistency was sometimes an issue. As a family that lives and breathes baseball, we thought the instruction we had been getting in the past was good, but it just didn’t have the thoroughness or long-term effect we were looking for in terms of hitting instruction. I believe your methodology is the key ingredient to why there has been such a tremendous change in Nick’s swing—in consistency, aesthetics and power. Frankly, I wasn’t sure you could get a 15 year to overhaul his swing, but your style of teaching and approach really made the difference! I can’t wait to see how you transform my 10 year olds swing next!

  • Rick Stiner brings a creative, evidence based, and outcomes oriented approach to the science of hitting. Over the last 4 years my son has made tremendous strides in hitting and more importantly has been able to enjoy the game of baseball in the batters box. Rick is a highly creative instructor who puts tremendous effort into improving his skills as a teacher by seeking out the best science based approaches to the art of hitting. I am constantly amazed by how he thinks outside the box when teaching, and that creative yet proven method of thinking gets results.
