“Yes his hands are hidden but they can still go straight to the ball at the contact point, which I believe they do.”

Hi Teacherman

About 50% of a hitters bat speed is generated from the angular displacement of the hands. So I would again ask you to address my original question to you.

“If by “linear” you mean "hands straight to the ball", please explain how he makes up for the loss of bat speed generated by the angular displacement of the hands (circular hand-path)?” Are you saying he is a pure torque hitter with little (or nothing) gained from a linear hand-path. Or do you think a linear hand-path somehow generates angular bat displacement?
