2006 Detroit Tigers Hitting Coach, 16 Season MLB Player, Founder of RightView Pro

"The question is not what you do differently from any one major league player but what do you do differently from all the best players in the game. What makes those players more efficient and more successful? RVP lets you see the common principles that make these players the best in the game…See yourself next to the best in the game."

After retiring from the Major Leagues in 1997, Slaught spent the next seven years coaching high school and Little League as well as developing a video analysis system called RightView Pro (RVP).  In 2006, Jim Leyland asked Slaught to become the hitting coach for the Detroit Tigers Major League Baseball team, and Slaught agreed to make the jump literally from Little League to the Major Leagues. Prior to the 2006 season, the Tigers had faced 12 consecutive losing seasons and ranked 11th in 2005 in total offense.  After being hired in the off season, Don got to work instilling the RVP systems at every level of the Detroit organization.  The Major League team improved in every major offensive category as a result and moved from 11th to 5th in total offense primarily due to their increase in power. They hit 35 more homeruns and scored nearly 100 more runs than the previous year.  Ultimately, the Detroit Tigers overcame a steak of losing seasons to make it to the 2006 World Series.

Greg Walker, Former MLB Player & AAA Charlotte White Sox 2002 Hitting Coach

“What helps me the most day in and day out is the knowledge I gained from the RVP software.”

Greg Walker began using RVP in 2002 as a Hitting Coach for the AAA Charlotte White Sox team of the International League. Midway through the 2003 season, Walker was promoted to the Major League team, becoming the first coach to use RVP software in the major leagues. When he started with the White Sox, the team was ranked 12th in the American League in runs scored, 13th in batting average, and 11th in slugging percentage. Walker, assisted by his RVP system, turned the offense around in the second half of the season. From the All-Star game to the end of the season, the White Sox ranked 1st in batting averages, 2nd in slugging percentages, and 3rd in on base percentage.  

Even further, in 2004, Walker led six players to personal best years and the team set a franchise record of 242 homeruns, the 9th highest total in MLB history. The following year the White Sox won the 2005 World Series, and in 2006, their offense was ranked 2nd overall in the major leagues behind the NY Yankees. Ever since Walker and RVP were introduced to the White Sox, the offense has made drastic improvements.

San Francisco Giants

"MLB World Series Champions in 2010, 2012 and 2014"

Spring Training 2010, the SF Giants called and asked RightView Pro to train their coaches on the RightView Pro analysis system. We spent the next week working with all of the Giants coaches at every level.

The legendary Felipe Alou said it best..."RVP helps coaches communicate with confidence, and we need coaches who coach without fear."

3 Championships later we are proud to see the Giants benefit from the radical move they took years ago!


College

Carol Hutchins, Michigan Head Softball Coach, NFCA Hall of Fame

"The content and the tools RVP gives you are unparallel to any other. When it comes to hitting I'm convinced that RVP can put you over the top."

Michigan Head Coach Carol Hutchins first incorporated the RightView Pro System in the 2005 season. Coincidentally she was introduced to it by UCLA Head Coach Sue Enquist, who became her opponent in the finals of the NCAA 2005 College World Series.  That year using RVP, Carol Hutchins and the Michigan Softball Team set a number of records in many categories. They became the first program east of the Mississippi River to claim the NCAA national championship by defeating UCLA. She credits RVP for some of the success.

College

Jerry Breaux, Head softball coach, Evangel University, Springfield, Missouri

"Numbers and stats do not lie. They tell a story. And the numbers this season at Evangel are living proof of what RVP has done."

Jerry Breaux has provided us one of the most well documented case studies.  Over three years ago Jerry was introduced to RVP by one of his students.  He was resistant at first but quickly saw how much more effective it made him as a coach.  "Basically, we now have a common thinking about hitting and that's a simple solution in my book!"

RVP received this e-mail after his first full season with RVP

"Last season we set a record for team home runs with 23 without RVP, and I thought that was a pretty good number. But this year, with RVP, how about 58 HR's?  How about 97 doubles and 14 triples? How about a team slugging percentage of 491?  How about three of our hitters with double figures in home runs...16, 15, 11?  How about six grand slams? One player only had one home run in three years.... but this year, she hit 11." 

 Jerry Breaux begins his 14th season as the head Evangel University softball coach in 2007. During his previous 13 years, Evangel’s 18-year-old softball program has blossomed. Breaux has led the Lady Crusaders to seven Heart of America Athletic Conference championships, including titles the last three years. In addition, Breaux has guided EU’s ladies to seven Region V Tournaments and his 2006 squad advanced to the NAIA National Championships for the first time ever.

High School

Coach Ray Beaudoin, Cony High School Softball - Augusta, ME

2012 Maine State Class A Softball Champions

I’ve been using Rightview Pro since 2006 with every level of softball and baseball from 5-year olds to the college level. The last three years I’ve been coaching at Cony High School in Augusta, Maine.  It took time for players to buy into the utility of Rightview Pro.  In our third year the results were incredible.  We went 22-0 with a team batting average of .420.  We had 22 homeruns, up from only 4 last year.  Eight of our nine starters had at least one homerun.  We scored 246 runs and gave up 21.  Our pitchers had an ERA of .65.  Our players looked forward to seeing themselves on the Rightview Pro program.  It’s obvious that they applied what they learned and that resulted in our becoming the 2012 Maine State Class A Softball Champions.


High School

in 2004 Softball and Baseball won AA State Championship for the first time in the school’s 34-year history! Softball won again the next year!

Jackson County High School provides RVP with one of its most interesting and unusual stories. Just prior to their 2004 season, both the softball and baseball teams purchased the RVP system. That year, the baseball and softball teams worked out together using the software and had outstanding success. Both teams proceeded to win their respective AA State Championships. This was the first time either team had won a state championship in the school’s 34-year history. The softball team continued their success in their 2005 season, obtaining a consecutive AA State Championship title.


High School

Al Toliver, Olympia High School Varsity Softball Coach - Stanford, IL

2009 Illinois High School Association Softball Class 2-A State Champions!

After just 2 years of using the RVP software, Olympia High School Varsity Softball in Stanford, IL became State Runner Up in 2008 and in 2009 captured the Illinois High School Association Softball Class 2-A State Championship.  The Spartans marched through the post-season - outscoring their seven opponents 70 – 3.  The girls finished the season with a record of 37 – 2. Coach Toliver saw a real difference in power numbers and team batting average and said that staying long in the hitting zone has been key for them in hitting for more power. The Bloomington Sports Commission named the Olympia softball team Female Team of the Year.

High School

Lee Yeager, Corpus Christi Carroll High School Baseball

"Texas 5A State Champions!"

We feel that RightView Pro played a major roll in the success of our team in 2010.  We used the fall season to maximize efficiency and create a big zone with our hitters.  Our kids are visual learners and it helps them greatly to be able to see their swings broken down next to the MLB pro hitting models that are in the software.
