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.

> > Hi Jack, In reply to your question, and it is a great one, first of all I think we all agree that bat speed is a result of many factors. I agree the bat will move roughly about 24 inches to contact, but I believe that you had better be generating this speed through the entire swing. Hitting through the ball during the process of extension is the last 4 or 5 inches I think you made reference to, speed to the ball had better already have started coming out of the trigger and from the kinetic chain ground up--dog
