BHL - PFO

It took several months but we have completed an autocad simulation of the baseball swing. As most will offer, there are a multitude of parameters/factors that need to be addressed/input/reviewed if such a model is to determine bat-to-ball contact positions...and subsequently evaluate defined power positions. That said, and prior to submitting any geometric observations/calculations, I would offer to BHL:
1) There are very few examples found where hitting to the opposite field is detrimental to the game of baseball.
2) There are even less examples found of players upset with hitting opposite field home-runs off a 90+mph O/S pitch.
In closing as both a past player, and one capable of discussing theoretical and practical applications...I would offer that any player focusing on (always) pulling the OS fastball over MLB fences might be better advised to just make a good pass at the ball and focus on getting on base. Perhaps BHL is 7'-6" tall with a 9' wing-span and swings a 60" bat. This would make it much easier to "go yard" accross the outside part of the plate. I think BHL offers his PFO just to get a rise out of certain people on this site.
