clarification of definitions
I agree with Shawn, and I might add that while Jack, and whomever he replied to, gave opposing opinions, neither thoroughly proved their point.
I realize that Jack premised a statement, “…by pointing out that over thirty of the girls (he has) worked with via video analysis to help perfect their rotational mechanics have now graduated from high school and received Division I or II College Scholarships” but what was the total pool?
Another statement says, “Their main problem now is the college coaches do not understand the swing mechanics that got these girls there.” For all 30? What is the proof for making that statement? Did you rely on the girls telling you this?
And as Shawn asks, “…what makes a linear hitter-linear- and a rotational hitter-rotational?” Does a universal definition exist? Aren’t there elements of each, even in great hitters? A visual demonstration would be worth a thousand words.
Jack can you demonstrate what you consider linear vs. rotational characteristics at:
and if you will, could you reply to a post I posted while you were on vacation (it also could possibly VISUALLY clear up definition inconsistencies):
could you please demonstrate at what frame of video for say Chipper Jones @
that the following start:
5. START OF THE SWING
