"Coach Mike has become a mentor to three of my four boys over the last several years. Mike's devotion cultivated six years of starting varsity seasons and three all-county selections between the two eldest. Mike is a master at drilling your little slugger on the fundamental mechanics of hitting. Mike's distinctive ability to recognize slight flaws in the progression of the swing mechanics, and extraordinary knack to instantly provide a drill to rectify that flaw, separates him from the middling hitting coach. Mike's unquestionably most unique asset as a hitting instructor seems counter intuitive: Mike endeavors to make himself expendable and obsolete by imparting the ability to self-diagnose, minimizing the need for additional lessons! The level of development he provides makes him decisively indispensable.........with the hitter humbly clamoring for more apple pie."
Throughout my four years of working with Mike Hebert, he has changed my broken swing into a fluent and smooth motion. Mike's niche is his thorough understanding of the "proper" mechanics of driving the ball. He has helped me hit for a much better average and with more strength allowing me to drive the ball with more distance. The way he teaches allows me to improve my weight transfer and mechanics right away with very little struggle. Defensively, my footwork and pop time down to second base have greatly improved under his instruction. Hebert Hitting is the reason why I am playing NCAA baseball. Thank you, Mike.
After spending one off-season working with Mike on her hitting mechanics, my daughter Morgan has a much improved ability to self-adjust throughout at an at bat or game. Mike breaks down every aspect of the swing and explains it in a way that is easily understood by the student. Her knowledge of the art and her ability to convey that to others has increased dramatically.
Time spent with Mike has transformed my son from a player who tried to not strike out to a player who is driving the ball to all fields. The confidence has jumped dramatically due to the fundamental understanding of his swing and the reps spent triggering the muscle memory. He is a different hitter.

Mike has improved my offensive skills immensely. He breaks down hitting so that I can understand it and apply it to my swing. Just a few small changes that Mike had me make has increased my performance and my confidence at the plate. To date, I have hit 8 more home runs since starting lessons with Mike.

My son Andrew has been working with Mike for the past 3 years. Andrew looks forward to each session with “Coach Mike”. Yes, there are other “hitting instructors” closer to our home, but we feel Mike is worth the longer drive. There is no doubt that Mike has a thorough understanding of the baseball swing. He has the ability to teach proper fundamentals in a meaningful way. Mike has a keen eye which enables him to quickly address even the most subtle issues. Mike’s instruction has resulted in outstanding game-day results, and that translates to a happy kid who enjoys the game.
Joshua began working with Mike several years ago when he first joined the Rattler program. At that time, he lacked basic hitting skills and confidence at the plate. Mike has worked with Joshua with a focus on core skill development and has helped him become a much more consistent, stronger and more effective hitter. Joshua looks to every at bat with confidence now!
I have been a student of Coach Hebert's for three years on the defensive side of the game. I love the way he teaches; he's firm, fair and has high expectations - three things that are essential for me in a coach. Without the time I spent with him I can honestly say I would not be as far into the college recruiting process as I am today.
Thank you Coach Hebert

My son Ryan has been taking hitting lessons with Mike now for the last 3 years. Mike’s systematic approach to a proper baseball swing and comfortable coaching style has helped my son immensely. We are extremely pleased with the Hebert Hitting program.
We are really pleased with the progress Amber has made since starting at Hebert Hitting. Mike’s methodical, detailed approach is exactly what she needed to understand the mechanics of her swing and what she needs to do to be successful. The specific drills and instruction have helped her become a more consistent, confident hitter.
Abby has been taken catching lessons from Mike and Alex for 3 years and have taken her from a novice to an elite catcher. Mike and Alex’s attention to detail is unmatched by anyone else. They continue to find subtle changes that make incredible improvements. Abby plays well above her grade level in school ball. Hebert Hitting has been and continues to be a huge part of Abby’s success.

"Coach Hebert not only improved my swing dramatically, but has really taught me how to be a successful hitter. I've learned how to identify and hit pitches all around the strike zone, so I can drive the ball to any field, with power. During my 2013 travel season, I hit five homeruns facing college-bound pitching prospects, at showcase tournaments across the Northeast. I have confidence at the plate because of everything I've learned from Coach Hebert."
