Hi Shawn

I could not view the clip. My computer does have the Quick Time program installed.

You state, “First off your both wrong, that bat first maintains a 90 degree relationship or the hands remain cocked as the hips begin.

Second, it's not THT or the second engine that turns the bat. It's simply a rotational hinge. Rotation is the cause and not some separate entity such as THT.”

If I had known of your above objections before I made the THT clip, I would have added a couple other points to the demonstration. (1) I would have shown that I could rotate the bat-head rearward with THT without rotating the shoulders. (2) I would have shown that my wrist would remain at about 90 degrees to the bat as my elbow lowered to my side and the bat-head rotated back to the lag position.
