MLB players from Trout to Stanton and Hunter Pence have all started to use the Zepp among their daily routines, and Trout has even become the model for Zepp.
Coaches have also been very impressed by the Zepp. Coaches can now, as Caliendo put it, “not worry about analyzing the swing and getting out of the way of the ball.” The Zepp will analyze every single swing taken.
The Zepp even has a package for coaches to use as long as they have an account at Zepp.com, so they have a better understanding of how to use the Zepp.
Stocking explains how, at the point of contact, a twelve-year-old hitter and a major league player are very similar. Caliendo agrees and says, “There is a common misconception that a major league swing and little league swing cannot be the same at contact because they’re two different people.”
Stocking then goes on to explain how his product breaks down the bat and its swing path. The Zepp analyzes where the bat is fastest and helps with timing.
The Zepp can be used for all ages. Stocking explains how he uses it on his four-year-old son and makes a point to say that as long as his son is having fun, he will throw him a moving ball, saying “we just have to make baseball fun again.”
Caliendo then jokes, “I’ll probably get a lot of emails now, but softball and baseball players will try to marry each other.” Stocking agrees and jokingly adds, “Yeah, that’s true and thank god my wife had a way better arm than I did.”
