Williams and Jack: An important overlap

Posted by: Paul () on Mon Aug 8 16:17:00 2011

Recently, Epstein posted this on his website

"In case you may be wondering, Williams advocated a push-pull effect with both hands, distributing them equally, but was quick to point out that the bat must flatten out as the swing starts to get on the plane of the pitch."

This push-pull effect sounds a lot like this " So, in the swing of a great hitter, what appears to be wrist action is actually the "push - pull" action of the hands generating a large amount of torque."

I guess "hands are along for the ride" is very dead.
