Hello, Jack. I have recently been considering the method used by some Major League players (two, actually--B.J. Upton and Albert Pujols) of turning your foot so that the heel is facing the pitcher in the launch. A good picture of this can be found here:
In doing this, it allows the toes of your feet to turn back the other way, and then almost directly facing the pitcher. This allows better clearing of the hips.
Would you advocate this, Jack? Do you see any advantage? As I mentioned before, it would allow the front foot to face the pitcher very effectively.
