Read them, and then you'll see that improved strength, endurance, and flexibility played a major part in thier life. Saying mechanics is everything you should care about in hitting is a ridulous statement. You need good mechanics to be a good hitter, but with good mecahnics you also need improved strength, edurance, and flexibility to be a great hitter.
this is an issue that has not been given nearly enough treatment, maybe because there are no answers....mcgwire has good mechanics, but if his biceps were smaller & he weighed 40 pounds less, would he have hit the ball as far?......if joe & bill have equally good mechanics & swing a bat of equal size/weight,but joe is smaller than bill, will joe hit the ball as far as bill? i don't think so, but i would be interested in a scientific explanation as to why i am right (or wrong)
