“I don’t do anything halfway. I’m either not interested or I’m obsessed. I’m just a freak.”
Ray DeMarini was one-of-a-kind. At the age of 40, playing on his company softball team quickly turned into a full-blown obsession with the sport. To become a competitive tournament softball player at 5’6” and 185 lbs., Ray knew he had to train smarter to hold his own amongst other hulking players. His scientific approach to training, a 96 mph batting speed and a bombastic attitude quickly earned him the reputation of a savage competitor among the biggest guys in his league.
Once on the pro circuit, it wasn’t long before Ray was discovered by ESPN producer Erich Lytle. Impressed by his knowledge and technique, Lytle tapped Ray to host a series of instructional softball videos called “Ray DeMarini’s Reflex Hitting System,”—still the most successful home video in ESPN’s history.
