Re: Can't buy in to rotational mechanics

Posted by: Jack Mankin (MrBatspeed@aol.com) on Thu Jul 27 07:37:23 2006

>>> I just finished my first season at William Jewell college. After refurbishing my swing I have done a lot of research on rotational versus linear hitting mechanics. Our coach teaches linear mechanics. I had my doubts at first, but after sticking with it I find that I have better plate coverage and an INCREASE in POWER! Many of the best hitters in our conference come from our team. All of them with sound linear mechanics. In fact, a couple of years ago our shortstop led the conference in homeruns (15). The amazing thing is he was no more than 5'10 175lbs. Certainly not a powerhouse. I just cannot buy into the fallacy that linear mechanics is for weak hitters.
If anyone can sell it to me I would be more than willing to listen. <<<

Hi Daniel

Welcome to the site. -- Mike, in his post below, raises the same thoughts I had while reading your post. Mike states, “Now not knowing how your current coach teachs the swing. You may be getting or receiving rotational advice or instruction and it could be called linear.” -- From your research on rotational versus linear hitting mechanics, would you outline for us the key differences you find between the two?
