Re: Re: Lead Arm

Hi Jack,

I've been busy and haven't been around in a few weeks. The little "new" logos look neat. Keep up the improvements to the board.

A quick question: In your response to Reed, you note that "They all may use the bent lead arm, as you describe, to get the meat of the bat on the ball on inside pitches. But this cost them bat speed (rate of angular displacement). It does not add to it."

Is this a result of dimished translational velocity (shorter lever), is there another force at work there to explain decreased bat speed, or is it some combination of factors?



Post a followup:
