> 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.

I bet I'll get scap load if I tell them to pinch their scapulas together. Might have to show them what a scapula is. But that is easy and the concept is easy. Really only one way to do it.

Now, you tell them to hitch their arms to their swings and you'll get an infinite number of ways of which 99.9% will be wrong. Connection is the most misunderstood part of the swing.

Think about it......Rotation is fairly easy. Assume you had no arms... rotation is easy. But......tell them to rotate properly with properly connected arms and see what you get.
