Re: Re: Re: Re: SKIPPER, question about timing

>>>So even if the maximum velocity was reached prior to contact - maintained at contact - and consistant after contact - physics tell us that a greater force will be exerted through the use of acceleration.<<<

Hi Skipper

I am sure you would agree that a batter couldn’t time his maximum bat velocity to occur one inch before or after contact(the ball is in contact with the ball for less than one inch). What is important is that his mechanics do not develop maximum velocity ten to forty degrees of bat rotation past the contact point. This would be true regardless of how many muscle groups are involved.

Skipper, are you of the opinion that to generate maximum bat speed, the force of both hands would be moving forward at contact?
