>>> Jude, Jack Mankin. Do you(all) believe the high finish illustrated by Charlie Lau is conducive to homerun hitting?
Specifically in the case of Alex Rodriguez, does the top hand upward release contibute to helping the carry of the batted ball?
If in agreement to the above mentioned, would you agree that the top hand release is somewhat or specifically pre determined by the swing plane?
Lastly, if both hands were left on the bat would the top hand cancel out the extension process for most hitters and result in fewer homeruns? <<<
Charlie Lau Jr. and I discussed the “top-hand release” in a Feb. 2001 post. I think reading the thread may answer most of your questions regarding my position on the matter.
