The reason I ask is because I saw a replay of Barry Bonds hit a homerun the opposite way off an outside pitch. He was the only hitter I can recall that kept his elbow at his side even on outside pitches.
Jack, I don't understand your point about how the pull of the bat with the top hand is at different points on the clock. I thought the top hand always pull back at the same place? A hitter can't possibly have enough time to adjust the top hand pull, can he?
