Re: Acceleration vs. Deceleration

Nevertheless, I see an apparent peril in such a manuveur: doing so might result in hitting the ball where the bat is past its maximum bat speed, and slowing down, resulting in a loss of power, since accelerating speeds are not infinite, for the same reason there is no such thing as a perpetual working machine. I would much rather hit through the ball, that is, hit the ball while it is still acceleration, then hit the ball when I have already expended my energy, and my bat is decelerating. Any thoughts are welcome.

BHL:

At the maximum velocity point in the swing, the acceleration is zero. I am having a hard time understanding the concept of hitting with a contact point coinciding with maximum bat head acceleration.

Am I missing something?
