Larry Hisle, Jr.
All HISLEWOOD bats are hand sanded, sand shaved, and double dipped for an incredible finish. Cupping is available and bat personalization is included.
"Jus' used da bat and with the [Syndigrip], makes it feel even better, less shock on finger. Ill be out there hittin' tomorrow bangin' away! Gonna need more grips but I'll see u tomorrow and we can go from there. If there is anybody that needs a custom grip for that perfect feel on the bat, trust me Nyj Morgan say you’ll hit like a pro!"
“Being a fellowship trained sports medicine orthopedic surgeon who treats professional athletes, I know that any advantage in a competition can be the difference between winning and losing. I believe Syndigrip can provide a major advantage to a hitter on any level at any age. I believe that one of Syndigrip’s major advantages will be injury prevention. The polyurethane design provides padding. This should help reduce carpal (including the hook of the hamate), metacarpal and phalanx contusions and fractures from repeated impact or the unfortunate occurrence of a hit batsman. With its custom fit design, the incidence of forearm fatigue and muscular strain should decrease over the course of a season. When hitting the ball off the end of the bat or near the hands, the vibrations should be dampened, preventing pain. I believe Syndigrip is an innovative tool to aid hitters who want to maximize their ability. By preventing fractures and overuse injuries, Syndigrip’s advantages should be noticed instantly, but more importantly over the long course of a season.”
The Syndigrip feels good, especially for taking a lot of swings. It protects my hands and keeps them fresh"
“After having surgery to remove a fractured hamate bone in my bottom hand, I was dying to get back to swinging a bat again, pain free. The doctor told me that players start hitting, without pain, 6-8 weeks after surgery. However, thanks to the Syndigrip, I was back swinging within four weeks. I only wish I had found it earlier and prevented the hamate bone injury altogether.”
“Holding the bat properly is a key component of being a good hitter and the Syndigrip is the perfect way to make that happen. It’s comfortable, durable and takes the guesswork out of gripping the bat. What we like most about it is the way it feels in your hands when you take a swing and make contact with the baseball. We at Bigler Baseball highly recommend this product and believe it will enhance your performance at the plate!”
“Playing baseball has always been my sons passion. There is nowhere else he would rather be than on the field playing or in the gym improving some aspect of his game. As time went on and he began to realize his true potential, it became evident that he needed some help to take his game to the next level. Larry and Hislewood were recommended to us from a trusted source. We met with Larry and immediately knew that it would be a beneficial relationship. Larry took the time learn who Noah was, not only as a player, but as a person as well. He then took that information and developed a plan to help him reach his goals. He not only became a hitting instructor, but became a mentor for Noah. While Larry’s hitting instruction was excellent, his focus on the mental part of the game has become invaluable. Larry has become a trusted source to Noah for both on the field and off the field advice. I could not have imagined a better role model and mentor to trust my sons development to than Larry and Hislewood.”
"Since I started using Syndigrip, I’ve noticed a definite increase in bat speed and bat control. This has helped me make contact more often and hit with more power, which helps my own cause as a pitcher. I can contribute offensively and help my team more."
“After Bobby broke his thumb, I was worried that he might re-injure his hand when he swung the bat. Once he used Syndigrip, his confidence returned. Syndigrip made his hands more comfortable when swinging. I was thrilled to learn that Syndigrip actually protected his hand with the custom designed padding.”
“My new Syndigrip feels really good in my hands! My swing is faster and I have more control of the bat.”
“Coach Larry, just a quick note to share with you how much we appreciate all you have done for Sascha and his confidence as a young baseball player. After his first four weeks in baseball camp it is quite apparent that your teaching of the basic fundamentals of hitting, fielding and throwing have allowed Sascha to excel. Whether it is living your life, building a home, or simply playing the game of baseball; it is important to build on a solid FOUNDATION and we believe Hislewood has laid that solid FOUNDATION in which to build upon and we thank YOU.”
“I have used Syndigrip with my baseball playing patients in the past. The majority of these players have required less rehabilitation for overuse or traumatic batting related injuries. As a result, I am a strong advocate for the Syndigrip device.”
“If you want your son to physically and mentally learn the right way to play the game of baseball, then there is no better coach, instructor, mentor than Larry Hisle, Jr. He is incredibly knowledgeable about the best baseball training techniques and equally as impressive at connecting and inspiring players to be their best. My son significantly improved in every session and in every phase of the game since working with Coach Hisle. And most importantly, my son continues to learn important baseball/life lessons from Coach Hisle that will go far beyond his playing days.”
"I like the Syndigrip and think it’s a great tool for hitters. Hitting is hard enough and putting yourself in a consistent position to succeed is critical. Syndigrip ensures that you’re holding the bat correctly and maintaining the proper hand alignment throughout your swing, allowing you to concentrate on seeing and hitting the ball.”
"Thanks to my @Hislewood bat I got my first homer of the year #hitithard#355ft”"
“I put the one hand trainers to use immediately and noticed my players bat control increase instantly. Our team power numbers increased while our strikeouts decreased. The wood Hislewood uses is as hard as a rock! Thank you, Hislewood.”
"In just two lessons with Hislewood, my son’s hitting approach was instantly changed. He started hitting for power and average and was even able to hit the best pitching in tournament play. It was and continues to be a worthwhile experience for him."
"After a disappointing junior season which was shortened by injuries, I was determined to work harder than ever in the off season to earn back my starting spot and put up the offensive numbers that I knew I was capable of. I set up weekly hitting lessons with Larry Hisle Jr. which turned out to be one of the best choices I have made in my athletic career. Larry targeted my weaknesses and worked hard with me to become a more fundamentally sound hitter. The biggest improvements in my game however came from Larry’s help with my hitting strategy and confidence. Larry helped me better understand my objective for each plate appearance, and as a result I became much more patient at the plate and was able to wait for “my” pitch, and drive it into the gaps. It felt like I had finally discovered my true strengths as a hitter and was now able to better utilize them. This resulted in a higher level of confidence, which further increased my performance. I ended up starting my senior year and had possibly the greatest season of my life. I owe much of this to Larry, and I hope to work with him again in the future."
"My son experienced your training and I just want to tell you how incredibly valuable this experience was for him. From the “hands-on treatment” to the personal attention, to the teaching of fundamentals and broad love for the game, your incredible passion when working with my son was very obvious. You are approachable and informative in a manner that is seldom seen in other training settings. It is apparent that you wanted to see my son and other kids acquire a great understanding of the fundamentals, play with passion, and to have fun while learning. I totally believe that the investment our family made in my child’s baseball future is an exceptional value for the type of workout and attention to detail that was provided. What a wonderful experience for any kid as they prepare for their spring season and tryouts!"
