>>> Jack, I did my best to understand your explanation of PLT in your archives. I,m asking for another view or drawing as the written word is difficult. The rearward pull I believe I understand but it' the the bats actual angles from verticle to lag position is where Im stumped. Using the thumb to sweep the collar is very close seems much less than 6 to 8 ". Hope my question is clear, Thanks <<<

Hi Coach Dad

I realize how difficult it must be to understand PLT mechanics from the written word. I would add that it is even more perplexing trying to describe complex mechanical movements with words as it is trying to visualize them. I will place below video clips of batters applying PLT from different points of view. Sometimes a video is worth more than a thousand words.

PLT - Overhead view

PLT - Frontal view

PLT - Frontal and across view
