Hi Hitter

To give an opinion I would have to study his recommendations further. I can say that Bonds uses a form of Dusty’s “left-field grip” In his stance, Barry has both of his wrist bend – not just the bottom-hand. Dusty has his hands up near the launch position. So, I would need to know just where in the swing these grips are portrayed.

As I have pointed out before, many hitters have a very loose grip (especially the top-hand) and the angle between the wrist is constantly changing throughout the swing. I would also point out that Barry maintains a very tight hand-path – Dusty said that the left-field grip will “take your hands away from your body.”
