The swing mechanics exhibited by the batter we have chosen for analysis contains batting principles found in the swings of all great hitters. The swing is broken down into three phases. Phase one, "Pre-Launch Mechanics," contains five frames (A,B,C,D,E) and depicts the batter's movements from the stance to the launch position. Phase two is five frames (1,2,3,4,5) that cover the batter's mechanics from swing initiation to contact. Phase three (X,Y,Z) consist of the batter's follow through movements after contact.
There is a brief description with each frame of the swing, but for those who would like an in-depth analysis of the mechanics and batting principles exhibited, we provide links to selected posts from Jack Mankin's Discussion Board archives that pertain to that phase of the swing.
