Slow-pitch hitting coach

I'm in Pennsylvania, and have what's probably an odd question.

Where can I find a slow-pitch softball hitting coach?  I have decent
power if I pull the ball, and can go the other way on an outside pitch,
but I've been in a helluva slump this year, AND I want to increase my
power.

Or am I just 36 and have to deal with not being able to hit like when I
was 26?

One thing that I would consider is taking a look at Ray DeMarini's video
tape "Ultimate Bat Speed."  It gives you some pretty good tips on
training (weights) and technique which may just be enough to help you
out.  Another question, what area of PA?

Just my thoughts,
Brian

Slowpitch hitting coaches are few and far between.  I think that is for two
reasons, first of all, everything seems to be geared toward fastpitch, and
secondly, slow pitch players don't usually want advise from anyone on hitting.
Even if they really need it.  We have a website that might be able to help you
out.  Check out the address below.  There's information on an electronic
publication to improve average, and web site has a library linked to Amazon
Books, with some great selections available.
