Sometimes good linear mechanics but often bad linear mechanics. In any case, since linear and rotational mechanics are both used in both baseball and softball, I think the terms "baseball swing or softball swing" are more confusing than helpful as far as understanding each other's theories and thoughts. Perhaps we could start with Tom describing his ideal "softball swing"?

By Corey ... so should both swings be the same ?
What is the most likely aspect to focus on ?
Is it all about <a href="http://forum.onecenter.com/talent">talent</a> ?
What about the swing needing to be a slight up-swing so to
adjust to the downward flight of the ball via slow pitch softball ?
