>>> matt.....i know jack, tom, major dan et al will disagree with me, but in my opinion, yes!!! yes, the hands should be slightly ahead of the bathead to hit the ball away....reason: because the optimal spot to contact the outside pitch is the INSIDE of the ball, so the only way to angle the bat so as to hit the inside part of the ball is to get hands ahead of bathead......

it would be nice if schmidt's theories would get more attention....<<<

Hi Grc

Other than when hitting behind the runner, what advantages do you and Schmidt find to intentionally hitting the inside of the ball? Why do you find having the hands lead the bat-head to be advantageous? -- I am not saying you and Mike are wrong, I am just curious as to the reasons for your positions.
