Re: Re: short to the ball

>>> Possibly. Many poor hitters have very long swings which drag the bathead through a zone that is low and to the rear of them. (Often caused by dropping the rear shoulder) Being short to the ball would mean that you eliminate the path through that zone and go more directly toward the point of contact, which is generally better. <<<

Hi Marty

Welcome to the site. When you say, “Being short to the ball would mean that you eliminate the path through that zone and go more directly toward the point of contact”, what path should be eliminated and what should go directly toward the point of contact. For clarification, would you out for us what you are referring to in this clip of Pete Rose?

Also, some might say in this clip of Guerrero that he is dropping his rear shoulder – what are your thoughts? - http://www.youthbaseballcoaching.com/mpg/Guerrero01.mpeg
