Hi Marty

Yes, I concur with your observation, much of Griffey Junior’s downhill slide was due to lack of applying sufficient THT during initiation. --- One of my favorite hobbies is studying changes in swing mechanics of the top hitters during prolonged batting slumps. One of the key indicators of a problem I look for is the amount of angular displacement of the bat during frames #1 and #2 following initiation. These frames show Griffey’s swing generates substantially less bat-head displacement during extended slumps than he generated when performing well.
