>>> So how does the back knee end up pointing toward the pitcher? Do you drive it and turn it yourself, or does the force from "extending the front knee" pull the back knee and hip around? <<<

Hi dougdinger

As I pointed out earlier, the back-knee can be turned inward without the hips turning. I would guess the muscles in the thigh and torso cause the turn. My only point is that the back-leg seems to maintain its flex during rotation while the lead-leg fully extends. Therefore, I am not sure how we can determine which leg is most responsible for driving hip rotation.
