There is a mechanical difference between lobball and baseball hitting.
Observe the 2 swings on a 360ft field. Notice the pronounced stride where lead leg and hip coil rear at high point. Lower half mechanics are similar to baseball pitching motion.
It is possible to use this extra strong swing in lobball because there is more swing time available, as pitch speed is slow, and location is highly predictable.
