Re: Re: batspeed
I am 13 years old and do not know what you mean by using torque. Can anybody explain it better and why is it more effective?

> Dear Shaun,
> Torque deals primarily with rotation (e.g., the rotation of fan blades, or the turning of a pinwheel). According to this site, it is caused "when forces are exerted in opposite directions, causing rotation."
> Using these mechanics generates tremendous centrifugal force, which constitutes a force where the bat slowly drifts away from the body, but over time, which is analagous to swinging a water bucket at a high speed--no water falls out.
> Probably the best description of generating this force is described by author Steve Ferroli, who describes this in his book Hit Your Potential (in his video, too, Hitting the Ted Williams Way I) when he says that the batter must "land with both knees bent, and then extend his front leg straight, while spinning his back leg in a bent position, rotating his hips into the ball."

> Knight1285@aol.com bhl...two things about your post that scare me....(1)you citing feroli...with the many bizzare things that he says (excessive lau-bashing, "lighted baseballs", etc) and his lack of experience (and he doesn't even look like a coach), i question his credibility...80 % of the things he said, williams himself has never even articulated...yes, i know his book and video have ted's "blessing", but consider ted's age and health.....(2) "spinning your back leg in a bent position" does NOT transfer energy from back side to front side...somewhere in jack's writings i think he has addressed this issue........grc....
