Questions for Jim

Posted by: BHL (Knight1285@aol.com) on Wed Feb 28 23:08:23 2007

Hi Jim,

This is what I teach my hitters:

The front leg is in a lower-case "l" position at contact, with the front foot open 45+ degrees. Erstwhile, the back leg is in an upper-case "L" position at contact, with the calf pointing fowards towards the pitcher, and the thigh pointing backwards to the catcher. The back leg should pivot on its ball.

This is this the position that Bonds used to get into when he was enjoying one 30-40 home run season after another. (This was his form even before he bulked up.)

What is your take on these illustrations? Any criticism is welcome.



Post a followup:
