Hip Rotation

Posted by: Mike () on Sun Jul 20 16:16:42 2003

Today I was watching the Yankees/Indians game on TV and I noticed something I'd never seen before about Derek Jeter. After he ripped a double down the line in his first at bat the camera showed Derek swinging from a side angle, and it looked to me when he swung that his hands were in contact position during the pitcher's release and all he did was use his hips to rotate his entire upper body, including his arms, to explode onto the ball. Would this be something worth trying to do? Derek is one of the hottest hitters in the league right now, and would trying to use your hips to rotate your body during a swing be the best way to be successful at the plate.
