Lead Arm

Posted by: Reed Garrett () on Sun Jan 23 06:56:45 2000

Hi Jack, I never said a straight arm would result in casting. The casting comes from pushing your top hand out away from your body. I don't follow your "angular displacement" Your lead arm bent gives you a shorter path to the ball and a more compact swing. This also aids in bat speed using "rotational mechanics" as your arm extends as you swing like centrifigul force. While I realize some players like Griffey straighten their lead arm-he has extradordinay abilities. I would rather teach shorter compact swing. If you watch Bonds and McGuire that is the type of approach they use. Reed
