""""A player with strong hands, wrists and forearms will hit the ball farther than the person that is weaker with the same bat weight and bat speed.""""
I however, I think it's in definite conflict with those that believe batspeed at contact is the sole determinate of ball exit speed/velocity.
While I haven't come to "grips" with the reasons behind it--I too as GRC seems to feel--that there is a component at work other than just pure batspeed at contact.
If you had a "bat launcher" like a cannon that would fire a bat sideways at a ball in flight and it would reach the same speed as Mark McGuire, at the contact point--would the ball be hit as far?
I believe it would not.
