Derek is a great hitter but his mechanics, I believe, are slightly off. Similar to Jackie Robinsion (if any of you have seen Jackie hit), Jeter momentarily leaves his bat almost perpendicular to the ground (knob facing the pitcher) rather than bring his bat into the swing plane in one smooth motion.

How does a bat get perpendicular to the ground and have the knob facing the pitcher.
