> Physics law does NOT state “THAT HE WILL GENERATE GREATER BATSPEED WITH HIS HANDS IN TIGHT..” – In fact, the laws of physics would support the following. – “For a given angular displacement rate of the hands, the wider the hand path, the greater the bat speed generated.”

A slightly different illustration: Put a 33 rpm record on your (antique) record player. The outermost groove (beginning of the first song) and the innermost groove (end of the last song) are both revolving 33 times per minute. But the outer groove is traveling significantly faster.....because it is covering a lot more ground in the same amount of time.

Another (I'm not saying the main) reason balls don't fly off the handle of the bat.....it isn't traveling nearly as fast as the head.

Keeping the hands tight to the body as the swing develops will prevent optimal bat speed.
