>>> Jack,Nick on this subject I feel you can pull the hands and elbow back correctly and incorrectly.You can pull the hands back without pulling the elbow back[awkward],you can pull the elbow and hands back toward the catcher,which I feel does not load the scap and takes hands away from shoulder too much.We can pull the elbow back toward the dugout behind you which pulls the hands back and in a better position to the shoulder,this is what I consider to be scap load.We can see this in the clip of Guerrero from behind. <<<

> > The mechanics exhibited in the Guerrero clip is a perfect example of how I defined “Pre-launch and Top-hand Torque” from my study. Naming the muscle or bone group involved in these mechanics does not give someone the right to lay claim to another person’s work without giving proper credit. – I am not referring to you rql.

> Naming something "THT" that does not use the hand(s) (like the name implies) is where you made your mistake.
> Yes, its a language problem. But top hand torque implies forces placed on the bat that are created by the hands. If this is not what you meant then don't blame someone else.
Teacherman your response demonstates your ignorance on this topic. Go back to school and learn the game.
