Re: wrists

Posted by: Doug () on Mon Jul 7 11:52:55 2003

Does anyone think the wrists play an important role during the swing? I was taking bp and first I was just trying to just swing with shoulders- i wasnt doing so well. However, once i tried to get the bat around with my wrists, i started to hit the ball harder and further than before. Does anyone know why?

Rob, IMO you are now adding everthing to the swing. The shoulders supply power, and so do the hands (wrists, forearms etc.) When you use all of the body, you will have more power than when just using part of the body. The last couple of feet that the bat travels before contact are when the hands and wrist come into play. Don't forget about the shoulders though as they play a huge part in your swing.
