I will believe it when i see a no-strider hit it 500 plus feet. I think the stride contributes slightly to batspeed, the same way i think field goal kickers take 3 steps before kicking the ball, i think you generate momentum which is translated into added batspeed that wouldnt be existant with no stride.
