CARLSBAD, Calif., Feb. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- MLB superstar Evan Longoria and SKLZ have teamed up for a unique web-based video series entitled "Batting Cleanup: The SKLZ Guide to Hitting with Confidence." The series, produced and released exclusively by SKLZ online, reveals 30 tips, training exercises and hitting drills from Longoria in order to help make ballplayers more confident hitters. Not only will viewers learn insider training techniques from the best, but they'll also get a more personal view of Longoria in the process.

"Evan is a pro in every sense of the word," said SKLZ CEO John Sarkisian. "Not only is he a player at the top of his game, but he went out of his way in our video series to provide fantastic insight into the drills and mindset that sets him apart."

SKLZ, the #1 seller of baseball tees and training aids, incorporates use of its hitting tools to demonstrate a variety of drills used by top coaches and players. Additionally, it uses its performance training products and methodology of "Warm Up, Train, Recover", to maximize baseball players' conditioning and recovery to make them stronger and more resistant to injury.
