>>>Jack you said only 22 hitters hit rotation 10 to 12 years ago and recently as many as 60 some hitters or 3-4 per team if this is so can you say then most still don't rotate but only weight shift and can you weight shift and have chp.Names of hitters who take their hands right to the ball would be helpful to follow and see how they look in game situations.<<<

Hi somebody

The 22 and 60 hitters you are referring to are hitters that I could identify as applying top-hand-torque (pulling back the top hand) as opposed to driving the top hand forward at initiation. Most all hitters rotate and have some arc to their hand-path but they do not fit what I call rotational mechanics.
