> Swing plane should be perpendicular to the spine. Adjust swing plane by torso tilt. More tilt over toward the plate for low pitches. Slight tilt back toward the catcher to angle the plane slightly upward at contact to match the downward plane of pitch. Epstein is fairly strong on this and setpro had a side by side comparison of a MLB hitter changing torso tilt for pitch location on a recent thread in the private hitting forums. Jack focuses more on how to transfer torso/shoulder rotation into batspeed. Hence the name batspeed I suppose. : )
Thank you for the input. That help and I know where to look for more info.
