Re: Re: Jack Mankin linear?
Jack, having read "The Mike Schmidt Study" there is significant emphasis on the importance of an "elongated swing path" to allow more time for the bat to remain square to the ball bath. The alternative suggests the need for perfect timing. There is a compromise implied here but it would appear to have a reasonable rationale. The compromise suggested is "more strike outs in exchange for power vs. better average yet since rotation is also emphasized the compromise is not extreme. The Schmidt Study suggests as you know a mix of Lau "weight shift" with Ted Williams "pure rotation". I have not seen this issue discussed in your site, however I may well have missed it. Would you please help me with this? Ed Z
