In fact it can be a monumental task just to knock a ball off a lee: • For Katie Wiseman, a New Braunfels resident aid little league mother of four, it was a lesson in frustration to watch kids a tee-ball batting practice going about it the wrong way “A lot of times it was something as basic as the coaches needing something to help them put the kids’ feet in the right position/* Wiseman said. ‘They needed some kind of tool that would put a young boy or girl in the right place and make sure they had the proper mechanics for hitting.** A bit of brainstorming with partner Amie Christian led Wiseman to crease a device that she hopes to market and sefl in the near future. b’s called the HTT KIT, and it aims to leach the basics of proper stance in the batter’s box by using a color-coded clear mat with a corresponding tee and adhesive strip mounted to the bat. With the right instruction, a young player can consistently find the most strategic place lo stand and kicrease the chance of a hit within the "power zone.” ’The key is to get kids to experience success through correct repetition,” said Wiseman, who holds a degree in physical education and a Master’s of Aits in teaching. ’The batler will know every tune they approach the plate where to stand according to their height and where the bat should make contact with the balL” With several demonstrations, including a wefl-receivcd showing at the New Braunfels Little League Rn Day, Wiseman was encouraged with pOMtivt feedback for the kit.    -Ti Hie federal government awarded a patent last March. Wiseman is now working to secure financial backing. Her idea already has caught the attention of Nolan Ryan and his agent Matt Nerolato, md Big 12 Commissioner Steve Hatchell. Big-time game manufacturers have been lukewotmin their tesponse, however, a major step for the kit will come this summer when Wiseman debuts her idea at the Chicago Spotting Goods Trade Show.
