Hi Wilhank

I see no video evidence that the bat's path straightens after contact. However, for the sake of discussion, let us stipulate that it does. Any straightening of the hand or bat path after contact would have no effect on either plate coverage or the ball's exit flight.

Bat manufactures 'bat/ball collision tests' show that at contact, the ball is in contact with the bat for about 1/2000 second. During that time, the bat travels 5/8 to 3/4 inch. Therefore, the bat's movement or forces applied by the hands after contact has no impact on ball flight.
