Re: rotational and linear
> Can someone please list a couple of players who swing with linear mechanics and a couple who swing with rotational mechanics. I was just curious because I would like to view their swings to actually see the differences between these two different types of swings. Thanks!
Linear- Frank Thomas, Jim Edmonds, Will Clark, George Brett, Ichiro, Rickey Henderson, Dave Winfield
Rotational- Barry Bonds, Jim Thome, Brian Roberts, Paul Konerko, Fred McGriff, Miguel Tejada, Alphonso Soriano
The lower body also plays a part in linear vs. rotational. The more head movement from back to forward is more likely to be associated with linear. The opposite is also more likely to be true.
