Whoa there killer, lets remember thats this is a kids game when it comes down to it. If a poster asking for help knows and understands the terms and concepts that are being used to help him, how isnt he learning something. You can use a very powerful tool called you mind for visualization. It works very well, especially working with hitting!
> I won't argue that certain individuals who are receiving written scientific responses given on this forum will comprehend them but really, what small percentage of those "posters" are we talking about?
> Those I have read are looking for more user friendly assistance that they are hopeful they can translate and then apply to come up with a hopeful solution to their problem. I doubt any one of them will come back on the forum and say..."you know...I just didn't get what you meant by "x" degree angle, axis, flexion, extension or initiation?" What they will do is move onto another site and again- try to find another simplified band aid solution they can better understand.
> Would you argue that visualization through a written medium sure leaves a lot open to interpretation? Verses say a video with proven systems and with the ability to freeze frame,slow motion, frame by frame, rewind, trouble shoot etc.? A video or CD that can "show" a viewer the above noted scientific terms!
> I think you are confusing this forum with eteamz or another Little League oriented site. It is not "just" a kids game...most posters on this site would agree that their are countless adults and many, many multi-millionaires playing this great game. However, teaching kids the correct age appropriate mechanics as a child ensures they continue to find a modicum of success in one of the "toughest things to do in sports" (hit a baseball) as they grow older. The perhaps, fewer kids will jump the baseball ship to go play Soccer (stats support that statement).
Well excuse me mister, but I am a kid and this is JUST a kid's game. Did Mark McGwire ever know anything about rotational mechanics, or better yet Sammy Sosa? I don't think so. They just hit hit hit hit hit until they were good at it. I use this site to help me train, I understand all the concepts needed to learn how to swing properly and generate batspeed.
"I won't argue that certain individuals who are receiving written scientific responses given on this forum will comprehend them but really, what small percentage of those "posters" are we talking about? " So what are you saying this is? Teach a random person on the internet something new about physics forum? This is about baseball, not helping a 12 year old with a science project.
"I think you are confusing this forum with eteamz or another Little League oriented site. It is not "just" a kids game...most posters on this site would agree that their are countless adults and many, many multi-millionaires playing this great game. "
What do you think I am some toddler? If you are such a hitting guru post your swing footage and competitive baseball stats on here. I take this as quite an offense, telling me to go back to some eteamz site when I am the one currently playing competitive baseball and succeeding quite nicely.
Did I ever say not to use video? No, I did not. I would ask you to stop reading into this Mr. Professional DBC or whatever you are, and would kindly ask you to lay off the criticism of me on this board because you don't know me nor know what kind of ballplayer I am. Thank you, and Happy Thanksgiving to you too.
