Jake Mauer II has come a long way with a product that he invented to help his three sons learn to hit a baseball more consistently. With the weather conditions in Minnesota, Mauer felt that his boys weren’t getting enough swings during the weather-shortened baseball season. “We had to come up with a tool that could be used indoors. With the Quickswing, weather is no longer a factor in getting your cuts in,” Mauer points out. He had no idea that his original “contraption” made out of PVC pipe, a coffee can, and cement would someday revolutionize conventional baseball training aids, and become the fastest growing training aid on the market today. Many high schools, colleges, youth associations, and thousands of individual players across the country use the Quickswing in their daily training regimens. They all have one common goal in mind – to become better hitters!! The Quickswing is a very simple idea with a very unique twist. It allows you to take batting practice by yourself, while hitting a moving ball.
In case you are wondering if Jake’s sons ever did become better hitters:
Joe Mauer was the #1 overall player selected by the Minnesota Twins in the 2001 Major League Baseball draft. He was drafted out of Cretin-Derham High School where his batting average was .605 and where he only struck out one time in his entire high school career.
Jake Mauer was drafted by the Minnesota Twins in the 23rd round of the Major League Baseball’s 2001 draft. He led the University of St. Thomas to the NCAA Division III National Championship in 2001 and runner-up in 1999 & 2000. He batted .449 with a school record 84 hits and a team best 58 RBI’s in 2001, which earned him MIAC Player of the Year and MVP.
Billy Mauer is currently
at Concordia University in St. Paul, MN where he is almost certain to
drafted after the 2003 season. Pro Scouts have clocked his fastball at
over 90 mph (Somebody had to throw batting practice).
ST. PAUL, MN (May 13, 2003) - Mauer's Quickswing, a revolutionary new batting/training aid developed for, and proven by, Minnesota Twins top prospect Joe Mauer, is now available to the public. Also endorsed by hall of fame candidate, Paul Molitor, the Quickwing was developed to improve the hitting skills of young baseball and softball players across the country. The Quickswing, invented by Jake Mauer II (Joe’s father), helped develop Joe Mauer into one of the best hitters ever in the state of Minnesota.
"The secret of the Quickswing is that its simple concept allows a player to take batting practice by himself/herself and still be hitting a moving ball," said Jake Mauer, II. "The Quickswing enables a player to improve on the fundamentals of sound hitting - bat speed, hand-eye coordination, and proper weight distribution - while training indoors or outdoors. Joe became a better hitter because of the time he spent alone perfecting his swing."
Made of industrial-grade steel tubing and injected-molded plastic, the Quickswing can be positioned to drop the ball within any part of the strike zone. Real baseballs and softballs or plastic balls can be used in the Quickswing. Its adjustable end-dial enables a player to increase or decrease difficulty to simulate various pitching speeds. When a player is done using it, the Quickswing folds down for easy transport and storage. Each unit comes with a 12-step hitting guide to help the user become a better hitter.
"The thing I like best
Quickswing is that I can use it all year round,” says Joe Mauer. “Even
if you’re rained out, you can still get your cuts in."
