Tom,

On the contrary- the rotational style does require considerable "strength" from the upper body- but not in the way most people think. Strong arms and wrists are necessary to transfer the tremendous energy (several kilowatts) from the lower body to the bat. They of course are not generating that energy. The often-overlooked midsection is critical here also.

I like what SAbrahms wrote: "The great hitters in history all
made adjustments during a swing and understood that the pitch location dictates what you can do with it." I couldn't agree more.
