Switch Hitting

Posted by: Darrin (darrincook007@hotmail.com) on Sat Sep 26 07:09:33 2009

I have a hypothesis that one of the reasons why natural right-handers bat better as lefties is that having the dominant hand at the pommel of the bat is actually a stronger position.

In other words, in the right-handed batter's swing, the weaker left hand has the greatest role in the swing, since more force is generated by the pulling action of the left hand than by a pushing action of the right hand.

Anyone care to comment?
