Charley Jr., picked up where his father left off. After working as a minor league hitting coach, he began teaching privately to youngsters at all ages.
He greatly expanded on his father’s legendary teachings by clarifying and dispelling the myths and misunderstandings of the hitting system. He broke the swing down in to digestible pieces and developed drills that took away flaws and developed a much more improved swing.
His reputation grew rapidly when one his students was the 1st overall pick in the 1993 major league baseball draft. His name? Alex Rodriguez. A-Rod struggled in his first year at the major league level, hitting a miserable .232. He went back to Charley Jr. to fix the flaws in his swing. Rodriguez responded with a monster year in 1996 by winning the american league batting title with a .358 average, 36hr’s and 118 rbi’s. This was the highest increase in production in baseball history.
Chaz has also worked with Raul Ibanez of the Phillies and turned the one time bench warmer in to a slugger, who signed a 3 year 30 million dollar contract. Jr, continues his own Magic of teaching success. He has become the most sought after hitting coach in the country.
Lau Jr, published his first book in 2000. It has become the highest selling baseball instructional book to this day. He also produced a 3 part dvd series”Secrets Of The Swing” which has had similar success.
He continues to teach privately to major leaguers and players of all ages.
He recently came out with a new 3 part DVD series “The Swing Worth Millions”. The title is more than worthy, this is the finest insight and hitting instruction ever produced. Legendary manager Tony LaRussa and Cito Gaston contribute to this hitting Masterpiece.
He also just opened “The Lau Baseball Academy“, located in Hatsfield PA. It’s a state of the art facility that not only includes the finest hitting, pitching and infield instruction but tops it off with speed and agility and sports specific strength training. His instructor’s are the finest in their expertise.
