> > > Has anyone noticed how David Eckstein manages to get the barrel to the sweet spot of the ball so consistently. Would you call his swing mechanics rotational or linear or both. Would you consider the way he brings his lead hand straight to the ball Linear? Jack have you had an opportunity to analyze his swing frame by frame like so many others you have done so effectively?

Not to sound like a smart *ss but he hits with the bat. Every good hitter hits with his "hands" by turning the bat around them.
