That happens when people who were not hitters try to teach hitting.......they start explaining things about the swing that they think the hitter feels, except the hitter does not feel them. To brush off Williams, shows that you did not spend much time in the batters box learning how to hit.

What is everyone getting so sensitive about Williams? True, he was a great hitter, just not a great author.His book was good about the mental aspect of hitting (hitting YOUR pitch), but , kust like most other major leaguers he was not good in articulating the HOW of hitting.You can go ahead and make personal insults at me too if you disagree but if your entire theory of hitting is based on Williams than your baseball career will be/was about as shallow as the substance of his book.
