>>> Watch to see if his shoulders rotate with the hips and if his hands start behind his back shoulder. This will cause him to drag the bat through the zone and not square the bat to the ball. <<<

Hi Graylon

I think we can all agree that the hips start to rotate slightly before shoulder rotation. However, during the balance of the swing, the hips and shoulder are both rotating all the way to contact. In fact, as I have often stated; “The main reason for hip rotation – is its contribution to shoulder rotation.” There is no way for the energy from hip rotation to accelerate the arms/wrist/hands and bat until it induces greater rotation of the shoulders (where the limbs are connected).
