putting the weight all on the front foot isn't so bad.


Regarding the above, it is more of a complte transfer of the weight. It stands to reason that the hitter has either been fooled somewhat, but has kept his hands back long enough to be effective or he has swung extra hard which causes excess forward linear movement. Hank Aaron and Gary sheffield also had this finishing position. Players who finish with the back leg off the ground tend to hit more line drive homeruns rather than towering flyballs.
