Unless you are executing the fastpitch slap, nothing “linear” can occur during rotation if it’s done correctly, as the best hitters do. “Linear” is not a term that should be used to describe anything that's supposed to be taking place during the rotation phase.

JTW,

With proper mechanics in the swing, the bat-head is in fact thrown into a straighter path through the hitting zone. A straighter path can in fact be referred to as a more linear path.

Is it a perfectly straight line? Let's get out our rulers an check...Nope not perfectly straight. Give me a break.

Do you disagree with the fact that the bat-path straightens out, or do you just think of the word "linear" as a four-letter word?
