different strides and stances

Posted by: Just a guy (scottgeiger@peoplepc.com) on Thu Feb 21 13:06:18 2002

Hey everybody. I am curious to learn some of your ideas on the different strides players use. My question is about Ichiro vs. Edmonds. Ichiro put on a show in batting practice at the Metrodome one day and I was able to watch him from the side. He had his trademark stride toward the pitcher, but when he swung the bat all forward movement stopped and was completely rotational. Jim Edmonds does not stride and has a lot of weight on his back leg before he gets to his rotational swing. Which way is better for most hitters? I am a bit baffled because both have had so much success their way.
