> >Of course I understand that the players who pull the ball the least are not as effective. I am assuming that you are BHL, who constantly posts his theories that a hitter should pull EVERY pitch. While great hitters pull the ball frequently, someone who postulates that attempting to pull every pitch is the key to hitting is obviously someone who never hit a moving ball and doesn't understand timing.
> And the point of posting that list was that the top 12 pull hitters were not names like Bonds, Guerrero, Ramirez, Pujols, Ortiz, ARod, etc. They were mostly 2nd tier hitters who hit HRs with low averages (Palmerio hit .260 BTW). We should teach to copy the best hitters. The best hitters hit the ball hard, anywhere. The way to hit the highest percentage of balls, hard, is not to try to pull everything.

1. I am not BHL. Why someone would want to impersonate a forum member is beyond me.
2. I am not advocating pulling every pitch. I am saying that pull hitting, rather than "hitting to all fields" can lead to better results. The pitch right down the middle should be pulled, not taken straight away.
