Re: Rotational vs. Rotational Transfer

Posted by: Jack Mankin (MrBatspeed@aol.com) on Wed Feb 18 10:23:50 2009

>>> I don't understand how people can say the swing is purely rotational. These rotation hitting experts obviously don't watch as must video as they claim to. Watch 99% of GOOD major league, college, highschool or otherwise hitters and at CONTACT, the most important position in the swing, and their back foot is either barely touching the ground (heel to sky) or COMPLETELY OFF THE GROUND!!!!! That is a weight transfer folks!!! The swing is a amalgamation of linear and rotational movements, but there is DEFINITELY a weight transfer involved. <<<

Hi Coach Ab

Welcome to the site. -- I think everyone agrees that during the stride there may be linear movement and forward shifting of the batter's weight. However, as the post and video below shows, I do question their value in generating the bat's angular acceleration. -- Your thoughts would be appreciated.
