As I learn more about the baseball and golf swings I am seeing more similarities than differences. I see "connection" as the key.

I agree that there is many similarities between the golf swing and the baseball swing, rotation around a stationary axis, inwurd turn, a front straight arm, u dont need to make it difficult though, when i practice i dont even think about the arms, I just use my legs, hips and shoulders to accelerate the bat, but make sure your front arm is straight so a slight movement of the shoulders will cause the arms to react. I wasn't quite sure on the connection thing so i gave it my best shot.

8-10%? I'm pretty sure Jack said torque provides half of the batspeed, or maybe it's hip/shoulderrotation I'm thinking about. Well then if 50% come from hip/shoulder rotation and 10% from torque, where does the other 40% come from?
