Re: The Swing-Level, slight upper-cut?

Posted by: danni pinto (dnwpinto@AOL.COM) on Wed Jul 20 18:32:19 2005

> Merry Christmas to all: What just is a level swing as it relates to hitting a baseball? Can a swing with a slight upper-cut still be considered a level swing along it's own plain? Does Ken Griffey Jr. have a level swing, did Ted Williams have a level swing in their own right? I know from reading Ted Williams book- "The Science of Hitting", that he contends the swing should contact the ball with a slight upper-cut, because the mound is 10 inches high and the ball is traveling downward, so he states that the hitter should meet the ball with a slight upper-cut to mazimixe the hitting area to the bat. In contrast, Mike Schmidt contends that the swing should be level, because he says the ball will start to straighten out level before contact. My thoughts are should you not just simply hit the ball on the same plain in comes in on? Steve T, I know you must be shocked that I auctually read a book without pictures..ha..ha. Looking forward to hearing everyone's thoughts..humbly..dog
