“Inward-turn”, “Separation” & “Legs”

Posted by: Jack Mankin (MrBatspeed@aol.com) on Fri Feb 1 15:29:07 2002

Hi All

“Inward-turn”, “Separation” & “Legs” --- Their role in the baseball/softball swing.

I know we have discussed these issues before but I still have lingering questions.
(1) During the “inward-turn”, if the shoulders are rotated 20+ degrees farther than the hips in the launch position – does that constitute “separation”?
(2) If the batter opens the hips during the stride (maximum separation), what further value can the legs contribute to rotation during the swing? Should the hips open (fully or close to it for maximum separation) and serve as a stable platform for torso muscles contractions to generate shoulder rotation?

Your thoughts would be appreciated.
