>>>>>>> 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.>>>>>>>>

Jack,
We have just about beat this horse till he won't ride again. In your comments above - that's the whole point - that's why this is a great game. The pitcher is trying to get you to not "...have maximum bat velocity to occur one inch before or after contact(the ball is in contact with the ball for less than one inch)." That's why it is a game - competition - this has been my round about point so let's get specific. To have the perfect acceleration on contact and so on..... the pitcher comes into play as well. You can do everything perfect but the pitcher takes just a little bit off and now you miss the optimum velocity during acceleration. Your two run dinger just became a good fly ball.

JACK:...."What is important is that his mechanics do not develop maximum velocity ten to forty degrees of bat rotation past the contact point.">>>>>>
SKIPPER: I don't think it is poor mechanics that get's the 10-40 degrees off but many times good pitching. Great mechanics with great instruction and tremendous instincts are just one good pitch away from a lazy fly ball. Otherwise, we've got to play the game off a tee or batting machine so we can optimize our hitting mechanics. Don't take competition out of the equation.

Truly,
Skipper
