getting the bathead perpendicular to the pitch

Jack, recently I have been having problems with keeping my hands back. When I swing it seems that I am pulling off the ball. It is as if I am accidently throwing the knob at the ball. Do you think I should concentrate on straitening my lead arm and keeping it strait? Or do you think it is a problem with using my front side? Most of the pitches I swung at were hit foul the other way, or missed completely. I just couldn't hit it off the sweet spot. I seem to have this problem after long lay offs because of playing other sports. It could be a timing thing. It seems when I do everything right the ball jumps off my bat. Do you have any ideas on keeping my hands back or to prevent pulling off the ball.
