I was told to study this site by a guy who teaches hitting to my son,I am new to it so I plan to wade through the ideas for awhile.rql has exposed us however through video analysis to a whole new outlook at hitting.which he says was originated to him here on this site.It seems more difficult with the use of more and larger muscle groups than focusing on the hands but we have seen many great M.L. hitters all using these same swings,do others agree to building a swing from hitting a tire on a tree with different weighted bats 100s of times a day as a way of reprogramming and building batspeed.
Ted Williams illustrated in his book the Science of Hitting the principle of swinging with an axe against a tree. He showed unbroken wrists making contact swing the axe which showed proper hand position. This practice through memory will strengthen the hands, wrists, and forearms.
