Re: Choking up on the Bat

Posted by: Major Dan (markj89@charter.net) on Tue Feb 5 13:25:18 2002

Will choking up on the bat increase chances of contact and increase your batspeed?

It shouldn't have any effect on contact, why would it?
It could increase your batspeed, due to the counterweight effect but not significantly.

Often choking up is used to punch at the ball with 2 strikes and hit defensively. This could increase contact but drop batspeed and is a change in mechanics.

Bonds hits pretty well choking up but he swings hard. What does choking up do for a hitter?
