hands in relation to rear shoulder

Jack,
First let me say that my 14 year old son thinks you are a hitting god. He calls you "the old dude". Here is my question: Once the swing is initiated, should the hands remain back near the rear shoulder as the shoulders rotate the hands and bat all the way to contact? In looking at video of successful hitters, it appears to me the hands move away from the rear shoulder toward the opposite batters box, but do not move "latteraly" (or across the body) closer to the front shoulder. Is that the movement you want to encourage?
Thanks
Jake
