> If it is true that Frank Thomas a possible hall of famer is a linear hitter how is it possible that he generates so much bat speed and drives the ball so frequently and as hard as he does?

Hi Allen

Look at the size of his upper body. No one said you can not hit the ball out of the ball park with a linear swing but it makes it harder. Consider how far he would hit it using his body. His lower body does not get into the swing at all as seen on many of his swings.
