Pulling the top hand back does not lengthen the swing if the hands stay where they are,just turning the bat about a point between them.This happens before initiation of the swing.The swing is also kept short after initiation(turning the shoulders forward)by letting the shoulder turn bring the hands forward in a circular path rather than using the arms to create the handpath (which straightens and lengthens the swing).Jack likens the pre-swing top hand torque move to rowing where the bottom hand is like an oar lock that the top hand turns the bat around by pulling back to the catcher.
