Are you proposing that hitters take their chest to the ball like pitchers take their chest to home plate to produce a body position like a hypotenuse triangle? Are you proposing that hitters stack their weight out over their front foot? Are you proposing that pitchers should move their throwing arm before shoulder rotation is completed? I think that you are stuck with a concept that cannot be backed up with biomechanics, or video footage of elite hitters doing what you propose.
