There is recoil in any collision (reduction of velocity of the sriking mass) and in our case the bat will lose about 30%. So the term dv will be negative- it HAS to be. So, even IF you could acclerate all the way TO contact, this would still be the maximum velocity point (contact.)
You win! Just don't teach that to my kid. He actually beleives he is accelerating through the ball and become a good hitter with this "theory". If he knew the truth, well he would probably put a pocket protector in, stop washing his hair and throw his bat away.
