In this installment of Muscles and Management Gerry welcomes on hitting coach Jeff Leach to talk the "ins-and-outs," of assessing hitters in the current age of burgeoning technological advancements in the game of baseball.

To start, Jeff talks a bit about his background both as a player and parent/coach and how that had an impact on his career as a hitting coach. Jeff then details a bit about his path in coaching and the various roles he has held up until this point in his career.

Then, the conversation turns to hitting assessments and the process in which Jeff assesses hitters in order to help them succeed in game situations. The process begins with basic movement assessments and works all the way up to point of contact analysis and a really interesting test used to find the "hole," in a hitter's swing.

Then, the episode finishes up with Jeff's take on the important things to look for when finding a quality strength coach to help in the development of a hitter and baseball player.
