"If he knew the truth, well, he would probably put a pocket protector in, stop washing his hair and throw his bat away."
That's strange, I know the truth and still wash my hair, and take about 1,000 swings a week.
I find it puzzling that you would bring up Newton's laws and then turn around and ridicule and chastise me for trying to clarify them. I mean no offense, but really, it's inappropriate to quote the laws of physics unless you have a reasonable understanding of them.
I certainly don't plan on coaching your son, and I do think it's proper to teach a hitter to swing through the ball. So you're telling him the right thing in terms of cues. But if you believe the bat actually accelerates through the ball, you're only passing on myth.
Sometimes, entire coaching philosophies can be wrong because they are based on faulty assumptions.
