Back Forearm Rotation

Posted by: Bill (wah213@comcast.net) on Fri Mar 26 10:29:19 2010


I'm having trouble visualizing the entire lifecycle of the back forearm rotation through the entire swing. Can you let me know if the following is correct?

Picture the batter in a normal stance looking at the face of a clock (i.e. his toes pointing at 5 and 7 o'clock.

Now envision a laser pointer at the midpoint of his forearm (above the wrist) pointing straight up and acting as the hour hand (RH Hitter)

Okay - I see the laser at about 2 o'clock at full load position; rotating to 6 o'clock at impact; somewhere between 10 and 11 o'clock on the follow through; and high noon on the finish.

Is this correct?
