The stride makes no contribution to bat speed or contact percentage.
I solicit proof, or even arguments, of the opposite.
It might be uncomfortable for some hitters to do the first few times, agreed.
But anecdotes, personal experience and examples of successful hitters on video suggests that it is not needed.
Better, can it be justified from the blackboard that forward momentum accomplishes anything that contributes to bat speed or contact? I say no.
