Re: Handle torque

>>>In a hitter with world-class batspeed, how much of said batspeed do you estimate is produced by applying torque between the hands? Is it 100%?<<<

Hi Steve

No - not even close to 100%. Gravity will account for about 8 to 10%. Of the balance, it would divide about evenly between rotational energy (an angular hand-path) and torque. With lesser hitters with a straighter hand-path, torque would account for a much higher percentage of bat speed generation.
