> >>> Shawn. Thanks for your post, but I just do not see the uniform acceptance of a standard of how to hit. Similar is not close enough in my book. There is a dramatic difference in how Sammy Sosa hits, compared to Barry Bonds. Sammy Sosa does not use the top hand torc from what I have seen. He would be more similar to Albert Bell without the wrist roll. <<<

Frame forward 20 frames (bat vertical behind his head). Watch the bat-head the next 5 frames. To generate that rearward acceleration of the bat-head, would you say Sosa’s top-hand is pulling rearward on the handle with the fingers (THT), or driving forward with his palm? – You be the judge.

Watch the bat-head the next 5 frames. To generate that rearward acceleration of the bat-head, would you say Bonds is using basically the same transfer mechanics as Sosa? -- You be the judge.

What are the differences between Sosa and Bonds, besides his top hand?
