Any opinions on who the best hitting coach giving private lessons in the DFW area is right now?
Original Post
This could be helpful info to a lot of folks. Would be good if posters list the location where the instructor provides the lesson and also maybe a few words about why they think that instructor is the best or one of the best in the area. Some are great at the mental side while some are really strong on technical aspects, just a little info about what makes them special would be helpful.
Corey Thorton at Frozen Ropes McKinnney is by far the best instructor simply because he knows how to communicate with the kids. As a parent who played JUCO baseball and coaches softball for Texas Elite, I can only tell you that Corey is worth the small price to pay. I personally hate giving money away especially when I know what my kids are doing wrong. It's simply communication and because of Corey, all 3 of my kids have performed at a very high level. Thank you Corey!

Ok, that's pretty funny right there.

Dude named Mike in Lane 3 at Patriots facility in Plano. Little stiff in his delivery, almost iron-like, but he throws a mean fastball. And he don't give me no back sass when I swing and miss, he just chunks another one.
You're all wasting your money!!! You can get quality baseball instruction by going to you tube and typing in Domingo Ayala! He is by far the best baseball instructor in the country! Big Grin

Seriously, if you want great hitting instruction just go out to Craig Ranch and sit in between the four-plex. You will hear great instruction coming from the stands all day. Wink

Kidding aside, Curt Sanders is one of the best. He coaches one of the Dallas D-Backs 18U teams.

That was great!
Hard to beat Luis Ortiz @Swing City in Keller. He is as passionate and knowledgeable instructor as you'll find. His ability to work with a player's unique skills and strengths is almost as impressive as the charimsa he brings to EVERY interaction you have with him. He is still roving around with the Rangers minor leaguers, but still very active and hands-on with his facility.

I agree Luis Ortiz at Swing city in Keller is great and if he is away doing work for the Rangers then
Jason Noonan at Swing City is just as good.

@playattheplate- how can us FTW peps get ahold of Johnny Lyell?  Looking in the FTW area and all of these post are closer to the Dallas area.  Thanks!

Folks my sons have had great experience with: Flo and Coach T (Ropes), Tom McLamore, Chris Anderson (McKinney North) and Ben Montgomery (Rawlings Mavs).

Posted his info on your wall. Hope that helps

Depends on the level of the kid. If you are talking top HS level, Flo at Frozen Ropes is getting amazing results.  (High School Coaches send their kids to him.) Brandon at Premier has built up quite a track record having coached Josh Bell and Trevor Story.  Gary Ledbetter at D-Bat Allen moved to town from California and has filled his plate fast as he is superb. All of these guys are hard to get into and have limited slots. Check out Flo's small group one hour lessons. Works more like Major League guys getting a few quality cuts then rotating, rather than sitting there for 30 minutes swinging and getting tired. All his kids can flat out rake.
