>>> So your telling me that hitting the ball to the opposite feild causes you to lose power and you should concentrate on hitting it strait away or pulling it.<<<

Hi MattG

I think I answered your question in the earlier exchange below. And as I also stated earlier, the direction the ball is hit should be more a matter of timing than of intention.

>>> Jack,

> Taking a wider hand-path with linear extension mechanics does definitely reduce bat speed and power. But good rotational hitters experience much less reduction. They add additional top-hand-torque at initiation to make up for the lack of bottom-hand-torque applied at contact.
