hips first or hands first

Posted by: Joe Steward (steward_44@hotmail.com) on Tue Feb 1 13:05:48 2000

First of all, do you believe in the slight upswing to meet the plane of the ball or a down swing to produce backspin. I was wondering what should be the first to move, the hands or the hips. I have been told that to generate power, open the hips first. I have also been told to start the hands first and then bring the hips. I have been told that both of these are the secret to greater bat speed. Which is it?
