Hi Jima

Although Pete does take his hands in a CHP, his mechanics would need to apply more torque (THT and BHT) to hit with power. This clip of Frank Robinson - http://dmcmillan.topcities.com/Robinson1.mov - also shows the CHP. But note how applying THT allowed him to generate much greater rearward acceleration of the bat-head from the launch position back toward the lag position (bat pointing at the catcher).
