Dr. Yeager's Whip Theory

>>> "The sudden change of direction of a whip handle is the key element. The sudden change of direction of the body is the key element of the whip effect of a swing"

I haven't heard to many people talk about the change of direction, I also think it's key to the hitting process.

Jack,

Why can't we have both?, whip affect and CHP. <<<

Hi Shawn

I find discussing issues one at a time to be more productive. Therefore, would you address the “change of direction of the body” issue before we discuss the whip & CHP topic. You stated, “I haven't heard to many people talk about the change of direction, I also think it's key to the hitting process.”

In trying to understand your statement, I chose Tejada (first clip, bottom row at, http://www.youthbaseballcoaching.com/swings.html ) because he takes a fairly long stride. Would you describe where the change in body direction occurs and why it is a key to hitting.
