The swing finish
although this article has been out for a while, http://www.baseballtips.com/lost_secrets_of_hitting.htmnd and there has been some discussion on it, I would like to resurrect it. The older players did have flatter swings and if these stats are correct how can one refute the benefits of a low finish. Can we rule out today's pitching as be a factor for the high finish? Do you have to be so far back on the axis and lift to have home run power? Looking at clips of today's sluggers I find there are still some who consistently finish low, even on pitches down in the zone. Juan Gonzales and Gary Sheffield are two.
as a baseball coach this is one issue that still plagues me.
your thoughts ?
