Bonds#71 swing

Posted by: RQL () on Sat Oct 6 18:39:16 2001

I saw a [still shot] at contact of #71.Bonds appeared to have his arms extended in a V.His shoulders and hips were not facing the pitcher yet but his fingers were definitely up and down.Also his barrel was slightly ahead of his hands,just a little ahead of perpendicular.I read he hit a tailing fb but do not know where he hit it.My guess is he hit it slightly to the pull side of center,also I think that what he may have originally saw early and committed to then changed a little causing little changes in his swing [programming] and he made the adjustments to his mechanics to get the fat part of bat on the ball.He had to extend to get the sinking pitch and he had to not keep rotating perfectly circular in order to not pull off the fading pitch,yet the early mechanics and the perfect collision was enough to carry out of park,how far did it go?Any other opinions?
