Jack's Archives

Hi All

The discussion board has now been on-line for 10 years. During that time, there have been tens of thousands of posts asking question or making comments covering every aspect of the baseball/softball swing. I have addressed the topic raised in most new posts many times before. Therefore, I can normally refer the reader to a post from my Archives that addresses his topic.

I had hoped that by now we would have my entire archive of posts on the site for all to review. There are about 350 posts in the archives. However, many of these posts make reference to video clips of MLB hitters that are no longer available on the web. I am in the process of developing new clips to replace them. In the meantime, I am placing an outline of the Archives below along with a few posts to get started.

1. Miscellaneous

(A) Misc. topics
(B) Golf/baseball/softball/tennis
(C) Players/coaches/authorities
(D) Test/training
(E) Aids/drills/cues
(F) Linear vs rotational
(G) Video analysis

2. Energy Development -- Lower-body mechanics

(A) Stride
(B) Weight-shift/momentum
(C) Lower-body
(D) Rotation/separation
(E) Axis

3. Energy transfer -- Upper-body mechanics

(A) Launch position
(B) Grip
(C) Wrist
(D) Initiation
(E) Extension/back-arm
(F) Casting/lead-arm
(G) Hand-path
(H) B/H/T
(I) T/H/T
(J) Contact
(K) Inside/outside
(L) Swine plane
(M) Long/short swing
(N) Bat Lag

We will start at the top with the "Miscellaneous" heading. There are 13 posts in the "(A) Misc. Topics". Below are the first three. I will add additional posts until the outline is filled.

1. Miscellaneous

(A) Misc. Topics

"Style vs Absolute" in the swing
@ The bat speed developed by all swings will be governed by the same physics principles

The "Absolutes" to a good swing
@ 39 mechanical characteristics

Pulling off the ball
@ Rotating shoulders does not pull off the ball
@ Overhead video clips of Rose's mechanics
