FDI Training Philosophy
We have learned through scientific research at the FDI that performing well in a real game takes much more than standard batting practice, soft toss and traditional training methods. Game Time Pressure Training® at the FDI was created by CEO/Founder of Baseball Factory, Steve Sclafani, along with prominent researcher and psychologist, Dr. James Driskell. Dr. Driskell is a leading expert on stress training and has worked with the Dept. of Defense and NASA.
Game Time Pressure Training® & Simulation
Players will learn how to deal with stressful elements of crowd noise, parents/family cheering, wind and other distractions. Experience live at bats versus a real pitcher with umpires, announcers, signs from coaches, noise, etc.
Our research shows that players who train under these extreme conditions will adapt to stress so they can perform better in real game
