>>> Watching the Williams and Bonds clip I do not see the bat being accelerated prior to rotation. I see them bringing the bat and hands up to the launching position at toe touch and then the hips begin to rotate. It's true the shoulders haven't started to rotate although the lower body has started. This is when the bat starts to rotate. <<<

Hi Shawn

The back knee also starts its rotation ahead of shoulder rotation. However, the rotation of the feet, knees, hips and torso do not have linkage to effect the batís acceleration until the shoulders start to rotate. The arms-wrists-hands-bat segmentation is linked at the shoulders.
