Graylon, first off, how many times has it been discussed and, agreed upon, that undoubtedly what we actually see in the launch of the swing, the back elbow tuckin in close? That all important ONE piece unit coming through. If the elbow is in the that ideal location at the side of the body during swing launch,how could the hands set the pitch plane, without inducing the same tilt in the body, including the shoulders? Jim Rice once said;"the easiest way to begin a swing, is to drop the rear shoulder." Of course there's tilt of the shoulders, there has to be. Certainly, to varying degrees.
How many times have we seen at the point of that good fat contact, the front elbow slotted up and, the rear, tucked in close?
