Re: slo-pitch swing

Posted by: Jack Mankin (MrBatspeed@aol.com) on Mon Jan 17 12:05:29 2005

>>> should a slo-pitch swing be more of a level swing or an upward swing. Most people say you should hit the ball square so I figure a more upward swing would be better plus with a level swing you would have to hit the ball absolutely perfect(little early you'll pop it up and little late you'll ground out). Any thoughts?? <<<

Hi Ranger

I think you are on the right track. Hitting the ball above or below the centerline probably has a greater impact on ball flight than a level or slight up-slope plane at contact. Maximum flight distance requires an upward trajectory in the 35-degree range. A ball hit in the center with an up-slope of 15-degree is still in the line drive trajectory.
