>>Like Jack,keeping the bat above the hands has always been confusing because it can be interpreted so many different ways.Above the hands with respect to what? The ground?The swing plane?What if the most efficient swing is with the arms perpendicular to the spine,do you keep the bat above a line drawn where this would be?What if you swing and use this as a swing thought,does your swing improve ?
> I seealmost all new players drop the bathead because they think they need to swing the bat with the arms which are too weak to keep the bat up.One way to show them what it is like to generate power by rotating the body is to sit the on a chair that spins and turn the chair to let it do the rotating,then see how the arms move to the hitting zone.They usually position the bat well without dropping the head.Lack of rotation and lack of a circular handpath to keep the bat connected to this rotation is what is likely to drop the bathead in my experience.<<

Hi Tom

Great Post. >>>One way to show them what it is like to generate power by rotating the body is to sit the on a chair that spins and turn the chair to let it do the rotating,then see how the arms move to the hitting zone.<<< --- I use this method in the video.
