Jack Perconte played 12 years of professional baseball, including seven in the majors for the

Dodgers, Indians, Mariners and White Sox with a career  .270 average in the majors and a

.311 mark in the minors. A native of Joliet, Ill., he was a 16th round draft pick of the Los

Angeles Dodgers in 1976 out of Murray State University and made his big league debut with

the Dodgers in 1980.

After retiring from professional baseball in 1987, Perconte opened a baseball training academy

in Naperville, Ill. The hitting drills, mental training and coaching tips found in “The Making of a

Hitter” is culled from the 60,000 hitting lessons Perconte

estimates he gave while operating the academy.
