The Rebel's Rack

The Rebel’s Rack is a self-teaching rotational hitting aid that promotes the proper swing path and develops power for baseball and softball players. This new baseball / softball training aid, created by Baseball Rebellion Founder Chas Pippitt, eliminates common hitting flaws such as “casting” of the arms which results in a long, inefficient swing. The Rebel’s Rack essentially forces the hitter’s upper body and arms into the proper position. The concept is simple: if the Rebel’s Rack falls during the swing, then there is a flaw. If it stays in place against the upper body, then you have a short, compact, and powerful swing path.
Wasted and misdirected energy is the problem in most swings. Used properly, the Rebel’s Rack can solve this issue. By deactivating and de-emphasizing the arms in the baseball / softball swing, the obliques, lower back and front abdominals take over to turn the pelvis before the shoulders. This rockets the shoulders into the swing with more power and accelerates the barrel of the bat instead of the knob, creating the deep Nike Swoosh bat path and instantaneous speed needed to maximize a hitter’s potential for power and average.

    Might be coaching a t-ball team I read your articles and watch your videos quite frequently too learn, was thinking of having the kids use the rack do you have a rack for 3 year Olds? I think they are capable of learning, what’s your opinion/experience with kids that small. Thanks for your time

      The extra small rack fits my 2 year old son (he’s 40 lbs roughly) but i don’t ‘make’ him use it ever…actually he’s never used it, i just put it on him to take a picture once.

      I think kids CAN learn the moves for sure, I just don’t know if they will be willing to do the moves. All about making it fun at that age.

      Maybe try an extra small for your son and see how it goes.

    Why should you point your belly button towards the pitcher when you land?

      Dario,

      We do this so we can insure the hips/pelvis turning before the shoulders and create separation without closing off and losing our back eye vision of the pitcher/ball.

    Do you avoid the arm bar? And do you belive in “go back before you go foward”? When hitting

      Tyler,

      Just like most things, it is important to find a happy medium with the front arm. When the front arm lengthens fully, we often see bat drag at which point we encourage a more bent front arm. Certain players have the ability to bar the arm but to get it back to bent on the inside pitch. As a general rule we teach a slight bend in the front elbow.

      As for going back before going forward, we like this as long as the back knee stays inside the back ankle. That being said, many players don’t have a negative move at all and are very powerful and effective.

      Thanks for the questions!

    I know you and Joey Meyers are friends, the rack work with his catapult system hitting philosophy

      I would say yes it would. But i’d also say it works best with our philosophy.

    From an anatomy standpoint, how does this tool work with our female athletes?

      Mike,

      I get this question a lot…we have no issues with this at all as the Rebel’s Rack is worn above the chest and under the armpits as high as it can be worn.

      The Rebel’s Rack has helped girls turn faster and has continued to be my most effective power generation tool.

    I’m a baseball player and I don’t have the money to buy it could I use a bat instead.

    • Gabe Dimock February 17, 2017 at 10:40 am · Reply

      Greg,

      Yes. Hold it in your hands (palms up) and pull back. That being said, you won’t be able to connect it to resistance bands to work on overload/underload turns.
