Re: hips and power

Posted by: dougdinger () on Wed Jul 6 23:00:19 2005

> Hi when I swing my hips are not fully rotated by the time I make contact; will that affect anything like how hard or how far I hit it? Will it also affect the batspeed? Any info or comments is greatly apreaciated. Thanks.
The hips and shoulders are the main source of power. If you don't get complete hip rotation you won't hit the ball nearly as hard as you can. By full rotation, at contact the belly button is facing the pitcher (pitches middle and in) and the shoulders just past the hips.
