>>> What was so threatening in my last post for you to refuse posting it?

Here are your definitions of both "linear" and "rotational" hitting.

Linear- "By linear, I refer to the concept that bat speed is derived from the batters forward weight shift and extension of his hands. Batters are instructed to direct their energies in a fairly straight line back in the direction of the pitcher. Liner mechanics has promoted terms like: "Step into the ball," "Transfer your weight from back to front," "Keep your shoulder in there," "Pop your hips at contact," "Throw the hands or heel of the bat at the ball," and so on."

Rotational-"Their swing generates greater bat speed much earlier in the swing. Describing rotational mechanics will require a new set of terms, like: "Rotation around a stationary axis," "A circular hand-path," and "Applying torque from initiation to contact."

For those of you who are not well versed in this sites definitions of these two hitting techniques the brief descriptions above can be found in the "batspeed research" link to the left.

There are also descriptions of this sites definitions of terminologies in the remaining links to the left. <<<

Hi Jimmy

I found nothing threading in your post, only misleading statements that required clarification. Below is a post from the archives on this topic. You can use this and my material you posted to point out where I am wrong by saying the best MLB hitter use the rotational mechanics I defined.
