"I will show you an overhead clip of a hitter with over 3000 MLB hits. Open your mind and view it frame-by-frame. Note that his mechanics rotates (or casts) his hands into a circular path not A to B. http://www.youthbaseballcoaching.com/mpg/Rose.mpeg"

FWIW, I originally failed to see the circular hand path that Jack describes. I thought it was more of a J.

What let me see the circular hand path was watching the Rose clip and looking at the path of his hands in relation to the chalk lines of the batter's box.

Also, remember that the "circular" part is relative to the torso. It may look C-ish or J-ish if the hitter takes a big stride.

However, that's really just an illusion/distortion.
