The Dodgers’ new hitting department – Dodger Insider

Interesting article.

Van Scoyoc would move on from playing baseball, his final days occurring at the community college level, but he wanted to stay in the game. He developed an insatiable thirst for knowledge about hitting, studying swings and the analytics of the game. He became an assistant of private hitting instructor Craig Wallenbrock, who is widely known in the industry for his work and results with professional baseball players. Van Scoyoc calls Wallenbrock one of the most brilliant hitting minds on the planet.

Brown also at one point worked as an assistant to Wallenbrock.
