(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.

Install Quicktime, it's free.

Why would you have shown that you can rotate the bat back with THT without shoulder rotation? It doesn't work that way. The bat remains cocked or stays at a 90 degree relationship with the lead arm while the hips start. The elbow is lowering as the hips begin rotation, the bat doesn't arc backwards during this time. The bat doesn't arc until shoulder rotation.

I will make a few clips, but for now install quicktime.
