Re: To Joe A

>>> Just a question. Can you provide a list of Major League Hitting Coaches you have worked with and any active or retired Professional Hitters? You may have already done this but I am new to your site and was just wondering. <<<

Saat is correct, I have no professional experience. --- In no way do I consider my knowledge of situation hitting, reading pitchers or many other areas of hitting equal to that of professional coaches. But when it comes to having a deeper understanding of batting mechanics and the principles of generating bat speed, I feel comfortable in stating that I (and a few other coaches that post on this site) am more advanced than the professionals.

Although it must be frustrating to answer people who apparently haven't taken the time to read through your material. (speaking gererally, don't have anyone in particular in mind right now)

> > > Troy, I guess I lost part of my post. I said zero, none but to continue my thought, to the extent that discussions focus on what we can see and experience, it doesn't matter. For example, one can clearly see a "circular hand path" on video. Where we can get into trouble is when we try to evaluate things we can neither see, experience or point to any settled scientific data to back up our claims.

He couldn't think of anything funny to say, I expect. It's kind of like having a serious roundtable discussion where every now and then Joe throws a string of firecrackers into the room just because it's too calm and quiet. Then once every 10 or 20 times, he says something reasonable just to keep everyone off balance. lol
