>>> I forgot to reference the Bonds 01 clip as an example of the relationship of the hands not changing during the slotting of the elbow. Therefore, I see no THT. That is, torque created by the hands. I see slotting of the elbow accompanied by some body tilt (Or was that part of the bow-arch?) which uncocks the barrel and lowers it to the swing plane. <<<

You have yet to address the three questions I posed to you. Your latest impute raises another question. It would be more helpful if you addressed the four questions independently.

1) Are you saying that from your pepper stance, a bat can get to the ball “quicker” without also increasing “bat speed?”

(2) Are you saying a bat moving 64 mph at contact can hit a ball farther than a bat moving 80 mph (both in the sweet spot)?

In the Sheffield swing
3) What force, other than torque, could have been applied at the handle that caused the bat-head to accelerate up and over the knob?

4) In the Bonds clip, what force were applied to handle by the “slotting of the elbow” that caused the bat-head to accelerate in an arc back toward the catcher.
