The Pure Swing is a Southern California-based high performance training system established by 17-year MLB Star and Player-Development Legend, Reggie Smith, and 12 year Minor Leaguer and performance coach, Ryan Lehr. The TPS system is grounded upon over 50 years of experience using ground-breaking research uncovered in multiple studies in the lab that gave us the data on how the brain, eyes, and body all work in sync together.
During the clinics, players are divided into small groups where they will work in multiple stations to have their mechanics, plate setup, stance, swing plane and bat speed evaluated. Specific techniques, adjustments and solutions will be shared that are tailored to each athlete so they can improve any fundamental flaws or unnatural movements. Each player will be taking many swings to learn and understand how their swing works!
We also share invaluable mental strategies and concepts to help players overcome their limiting beliefs, and to learn how to deal with the games failure.
Meet Our Team:
A 17-year Major League veteran, Reggie Smith spent time with the Boston Red Sox, St Louis Cardinals, San Francisco Giants and as a World Series Champion with the Los Angeles Dodgers. As a young Red Sox player, Smith began learning the art of hitting from the greatest hitter of all time, Hall of Famer Ted Williams. His playing career included seven All-star appearances, a .287 lifetime batting average and 314 career homeruns. After retiring in 1982, Smith began his coaching career where he was the Minor League Coordinator and Major League Hitting Instructor for the Dodgers, where he helped develop four consecutive rookie of the Year award winners from 1992-1996 including Eric Karros, Hall of Famer Mike Piazza, Raul Mondesi, Todd Hollingsworth.
Drafted in the 8th Round by the Atlanta Braves in 1997, Ryan Lehr spent 12 years in Minor League Baseball as a third baseman, first baseman and outfielder for the Braves, Angels, Astros, Orioles and Royals organizations. He was fortunate to have played for some great managers such as Brian Snitker, Frank Howard, Steve Yeager, Joe Ferguson and Tim Wallach. He retired in 2008 with a .286 career average with 84 Minor League HR. In 2002, Ryan began working with Smith as a player through the end of his career in 2008. Since retiring, Ryan has been coaching athletes of all ages from Little League to the Major Leagues. Ryan was involved in a ground-breaking lab study on balance and the core with Reggie and World Renowned Golf pro and balance expert, Dr. David Wright PhD. Ryan still continues to learn every day to master his skill set as a high performance coach learning psychology, neuroscience, bio mechanics and communication so he can deliver his teachings with clarity, competence and conviction to all athletes and coaches.
