>>> 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. <<<

Hi again

I have added the next three posts to the archives. As I pointed out above, some of these posts refer to Internet clips that are no longer active. I will change those clips later. But for now, you can use the clip below as reference.
