Re: lead elbow up in the swing plane

Posted by: Jack Mankin (MrBatspeed@aol.com) on Sat Aug 25 12:30:47 2007

>>> ok so I took a video of my swing and I noticed that my lead elbow was very low and it stayed low in the swing plane because of my high hands and back elbow up. Well I think this is the reason my swing plane is wavy.

I took a few dry swing with the lead elbow higher in my stance and I noticed the wavy swing plane is gone. My question is what are all the benefits of keeping the lead elbow up in the swing plane besides a better swing plane and the prevention of wrist rolling?? Does it help at all with bat speed?? Thank you. <<<

Hi Dave

Both your topic and Seanís above address the role of the lead-arm in the swing. I will discuss the importance of the correct use of the lead-shoulder and arm in that thread.
