The TAP™ Baseball Training Sock, also referred to as the "Oven Mitt", was developed to facilitate a modified ball hold program. The design of the device allows athletes to perform a full throwing motion with ball release in a confined area. The ability to release resolves mechanical inefficiencies associated with holding a weighted ball beyond the release point while enjoying benefits related to baseball holds.

Developed under the guidance of Ron Wolforth and Randy Sullivan, the TAP™ Baseball Training Sock has provided solid results with athlete training and recovery. An excellent tool for developing posterior shoulder strength, it can also be effective reinforcing efficient deceleration patterns.

The Baseball Training Sock is made of heavy-weight fabric with more of the look of a bag than a sock to allow free movement of the hand releasing the ball. The Training Sock as it is commonly called is also known as the 'Durathro® Sock' and sometimes simply 'the Sock', as well as many other alias's such as the 'Mitt' and even the'Oven Mitt'.  This durable product was developed for weighted balls up to 21 ounces in weight. Instructions for use are not included.
