Re: Fence Drill

Posted by: Jack Mankin (MrBatspeed@aol.com) on Sun Jan 2 22:53:49 2000

Hi Skipper & Dog

I would like to explain my problem with the fence drill and other “knob at the ball” mechanics and maybe you can show me the light. --- The hands will move forward about 24 inches to contact. Why will bat speed be enhanced if we thrust the bat lengthwise (knob first) 18 inches or so before we apply forces to cause angular acceleration? What is the benefit of waiting till the last 4 or 5 inches of hand-path to develop bat speed? --- Please help.
