Re: Gravity in the swing

Hi guys,

My answers to this would be yes, yes and yes.

Dont forget about that overlooked, constant force of gravity on the bat. This could explain why all strictly rotational hitters that I see have trouble with fastballs at the top of the strike-zone. They also have a glaring characteristic of hitting way to many fly-outs
and pop-ups. Could gravity be effecting the bat too soon in the rotational swing?
