For John Elliot

Dear John,

I watched The Final Arc II yet again; only this time, when I got to the section in the introduction that shows a side-view of your swing, I froze it at the point of impact. Your lower body mechanics were absolutely perfect at collision (i.e., front leg rigid, back leg in an "L" position). Just as importantly, your upper body mechanics were equally as good (i.e., front arm straight, back arm in an "L" position).

Now, if you go to the "Truisms or Fallacies" section--specifically under "Get Your Arms Extended"--then compare it to freeze frame that I am talking about--I have no doubt that everybody in this site will agree that you are a crystallization of his batting principles.

My only question is why doesn't Jack replace the drawing of Ken Griffey Jr. at impact with a real life photograph of you in the same position, a picture that we can all relate to?


P.S. I think that photographs give us all a more vivid depiction of what the swing really looks like.
