With men’s league baseball around the corner and a new Baum Bat in my garage, I got antsy to hit some baseballs. Since the sidekick keeps me close to the house on weekends, I had to improvise. Enter, DIY Baseball Trainer…
Step one: Drill hole in baseball
*Fun fact…I still haven’t had to charge this lithium ion battery pack, after a whole bunch of baby furniture assembly and random tasks in the *lab. Battery technology is great.
Step two: Attach ball tether
*Fun fact… I have been looking for uses for old salvaged power cords. They are everywhere.
Step three: Attach unit to fixed point
*Fun fact…I had to go nuts with my tree trimmer in order to clear a suitable space to accommodate a baseball swing. I still have a sizable pile of tree that I am working into our garbage cans pre-pickup.
Step four: Get real
*Fun fact…I thought this would hold up for a while. It turns out ‘a while’ was two swings.
