Hi Sly,

I disagree.

Here is a picture of the plane of the bat path on a plane of the ball path:

The knob of the bat and the bat head define the plane. The ball is traveling on that plane during the relevant moments. The bat plane is not cutting across the path of the ball during the relevant moments.

When you hear the poor hitting coaches' say, "hit down on the ball", they are telling the kids to cut across the path of the ball which limits the amount of time the ball and bat have a chance at contact to a single point.
