Hi all,

At this point in time, this idea is simply in its hypothetical form; therefore, I cannot offer quantitative quotes as to how this method will increase a hitter's productivity. Nevertheless, I can explain the delineation behind the proposition.
> > >
> > > Let's assume that a right-handed batter has the capability to hit a ball 375 feet to left field, 360 to left center, 345 to center, 330 to right center, and 315 to right. Now, let's suppose the home run distance to right is 330; to left center, 365; to center, 400; to right center, 365, and to right, 330. If the player hits 25 fly balls--5 balls as hard as he can to each field--he clears left by 45 feet, but falls 5 feet short on his hits to left center; 55 feet short on his shots to center; 35 feet short on his shots to right center; and, finally, 15 feet shorts on his fly balls to right.
> > >
> > > Now suppose he pulls every ball...Obviously, every hit would wind up a home run, and he would wind up hitting 20 more home runs than he did the previous year. What this hitter discovered is that the placement of fly balls is just as significant as how hard they are hit. By attempting to pull every pitch--a hitting taboo--this individual has given himself an advantage over other hitters. As a member of my family once said, a 375 foot fly ball does no good when directed toward center field.

> Jack's system allows inside and outside pitches to be pulled. If his biomechanical principles allow one to hit to the pull field, why not take advantage by perfecting a method of timing whereby all well hit fly balls can be hit to the pull field? I am getting mixed reactions to my new philosophy, but I welcome all input, whether they laud or criticize my delineations.

> Teacherman, I recall in one of your posts that you argue that those with intestinal fortitude do not "run and hide," but remain obstinate when others attempt to erode principles that they disagree with. Yes, I have taken the criticism into account, and understand why some individuals may believe that this principle is ludicrous, or may even lead to bad habits. Yet, my theory is still in its infancy, and must be nourished. This is not to say that baseball wisdom embraces this unconventional idea; rather, I believe it shuns it, and, seeing that I have not validated a real-case scenario for allowing this theory to work other than in home run derby, they have every right to.

Assuming BHL is a righthanded hitter......

Now I lay me down to sleep. I pray the Lord my soul to keep. And, if I should have one last wish. Please let me throw 90+ over the outside part of the dish. Give me a curve, a slider and a change from hell. And let me play in "the league" against BHL. For as he tries to pull my every throw, I'll be raking in the dough. Give me the combination of Tinker to Owens to Chance. And BHL won't be long for the dance.
