With rotational hitting the batter plants his front leg and locks to finish the swing with the weight back. The swing will attempt to match the plane of the pitch therefore a slight upswing. Also with rotational, the hands come thru the zone well ahead of the bat head. These are just a couple of the many things that are different.
> Would it be safe to say that the MAJOR difference in rotational and linear mechanics is that in a rotational swing, you have a CHP to the ball. What else does your swing HAVE to have to be rotational?
