>>> I understand your disagreeing with my post, but I feel the process you present is not as black and white as you make it out to be. Otherwise many more major league players would take it as gospel. I just cannot see them as being that stupid as to not be aware of a process that supposedly all great hitters perform. <<<

Hi Guru

I read this post on another discussion board. It may give you an indication why “more major league players would take it as gospel. I just cannot see them as being that stupid as to not be aware of a process that supposedly all great hitters perform.”

Here is a story that I picked up from another site (I don't recall who posted it):

"Always, when this conversation arises, I remember a story Don Slaught told me about talking w/ Barry Bonds about his swing. Bonds said he "was hitting all right, but didn't think he was swinging down sharply enough to contact." Slaught told him that in fact, like all MLB hitters, he swung UP to contact. Bonds vehemently denied the possibility of this. Slaught used RVP {Right View Pro} to convince Bonds, and later heard him walk up to ARod at the All Star Game batting practice and say, "Alex, you know you don't swing down to the ball, right?"
