There seems to be a need for the linear swing. If a batter has two strikes or contact must be made to score a runner from third. The rotational swing due to it's nature seems to be less forgiving if the batter needs to adjust to a breaking ball. I teach the concept think fastball and react to the curve. Can a rotational hitter adjust his bat head to the breaking ball? Is there a connection between batting average and hitting styles?
