What I see as unique (looking at a "Power Showcase" video on YouTube)is his twisting of his front foot and knee when he loads and his bat finishes way behind his back. Certainly seems to wring every ounce of power possible. Should kids try to emulate his swing? I would imagine he's had all the best batting coaches since a young age. Will it translate into big-league success though? I'd bet we'll see some changes before his debut.

What about Jeeter's swing? The news was playing a clip over and over of his swinging and it looked like all upper body. Pretty weak.
