The purpose of this project is to focus on how video analysis can be an essential teaching tool for today's hitting coaches, specifically for those who look to become more efficient with limited time for instruction. This project attempts to enhance the efforts of collegiate baseball coaches to effectively teach a complex activity so that they can fulfill the other demands of their job. It is commonly known that college coaches have a rigorous schedule of recruiting future student-athletes and administrative duties not related to on-field instruction. A literature review was conducted to show how video analysis could be a helpful tool to identify the swing segments the naked eye cannot, give specific feedback and enhance communication between the player and the coach.
