[a thread on the Setpro public hitting forum]
is a clip of a right-handed Raphael Palmiero (reversed image) and a hitter doing what you describe.
What I see is that the 'other' hitter pushes his hands out front and does contact with hands in front of his body.
Palmiero contacts as he turns into the ball. The hands are below shoulder level but still near his side, approx. above his back hip, except that his back hip is now even with his 'front' hip and he is facing the pitcher. His hands release and come in front of his torso AFTER he hits the ball.
My observations of these clips show that your facts only happen sometimes. Strange that such a good hitter would break the 'rule'.
Is he doing something wrong or are there more than one set of facts? <<<

Hi Major Dan

I have been following the posts on Setpro. I was wondering who would note the difference you just described. Now comes an even more important part. What was the difference in the way these hitters initiated their swings that led to the trajectories Major Dan pointed out?
