> I have often said that a stride can be important to batters for their timing sequence. But I have not heard a supported argument that the linear motion, weight shift, is a factor in bat speed development. If you or anyone would like to present material to the contrary, I would be happy to discuss it. -- In your argument, facts will carry more weight than feelings.

> Jack Mankin i know you may be right, jack...i just wish i could see a scientific argument, pros & cons...i know that it is a natural movement to take a stride...just as a boxer steps forward or someone throwing a ball steps forward...i know these are completely different cases....i think it's amazing how much literature exists on the biomechanics of tennis, boxing & many other sports, and yet very little on the biomechanics of hitting.....respectfully, grc....
