The Hit Doctor Systems

Since its inception in 1988, the Hit Doctor Academy has built a national reputation for its Player Development Programs. Working primarily with “homegrown” South Jersey athletes, Joe Barth and his professional staff have sent thousands of players onto college and professional baseball. “Mr. B’s” Gloucester Catholic H.S., and Brooklawn American Legion teams have won numerous state and National Championships. If you ask his players what the secret to all this success was, they would tell you it’s “the System.” Over the years, the Barths have developed specific training systems for every aspect of the game that, if followed, produce astonishing results. The Hit Doctor makes baseball measurable and the players and coaches accountable.


  The student is tested, scored, and videotaped monthly

  The Coach and player compare the player’s video with that of an MLB star with a similar style and swing

  The Hit Doctor instructor will point out the differences between the student and the pro. If there are no differences, we will hire you to come work at the HD!

  The coach and the player will immediately collaborate and make a long-term plan and a monthly plan to improve in the specific area that needs improvement

  The coach monitors the athlete on a daily basis

  At the end of the month, the player is tested again and repeats the process.
