> Good mlb hitters who obviously have good/great swings and who cock their bat don't suffer from the hands going forward and getting out of position. However, the cocking of the bat is not what is keeping this from happening. There is not a cause and effect relationship. There is another element present. It's called connection. Very difficult to explain and understand. Our language doesn't seem to have the words for it. But, I've seen many a bat cocked properly yet not delivered to the hit zone properly.

> Can't read the tone of your post but your definition still doesn't cut it. Tell you what.....tell a group of 16 year olds to "hitch" their arms to their swings and tell me what you get.
If by tone you mean:Tone - noun - style or manner expression in writing or speaking - then I would say the tone is plain.
I was responding to your comment that, "It's called connection. Very difficult to explain and understand. Our language doesn't seem to have the words for it." I believe that our language have a word for it and that word is hitch as defined in the dictionary
As far as how to teach it to 16 year olds I have no comment other than to agree with you that, "It's not that simple."
