Definitely a few degrees short of a properly tilted swing.

Certainly, we can agree this pic is at the point-of-contact you talk about.........And, you mentioned Pujol, so, we'll discuss Pujol........Pujol's weight at the point-of-contact is in the middle...........I'll gladly school you on how, and where, MLB hitters shift their weight, later...........But, for now, you can't believe Pujol can get in this position with no weight on his rear-side..........He simply cannot have his weight in the middle with no weight on the rear-side..........

Dude, you are such a clown.  I can image that your "students" are all hitting at the Mendoza line for their careers.  Shep had it right.  This picture clearly shows that that there no weight on Pujols back foot at the point of contact.  His hips have opened up and the body is tourquing on an axis as he completes his follow through.  I would love to know the ground force measurement of his front foot at this point in time.  This is the epitome of a rotational swing!

I think blue is attempting to get a college coaching job. Does that count?

LongBallGuru, LOL.............. You're the epitome of what's wrong the hitting in college softball..........Really, you are!

First of all, you don't understand what torque is..........And, the "rotational" talk is a dead give-a-way that you're light years behind the curve in understanding how to swing a bat...........

Here's where you have no chance to justify your thoughts...........If Pujols were to pick up his rear foot, he would fall rearward toward the catcher...........That is, indeed, what happens during the swing...........His head is over his rear hip.........Put your glasses on and look at the clips I posted..........

Uh-oh, LongBall, you're exposed!     [smile]


So you'll know, torque is opposing forces going in opposite directions...........You're lucky I don't charge you for the lessons...........

Now, keep it up and Janie's gonna rip you up and down.........You'll be on your own there!

<<Late Thursday afternoon, The Herald Journal was told by a USU spokesman that Johnson is “on administrative leave for a personnel matter.” No further details were given.>>

The difference between a 'personnel' matter and a 'personal' matter can be wide

I'm assuming the writer meant to write the latter

Quotation marks seem to denote the statement was directly from a USU spokesman

Yeah, if it was mis-written, it was done by that person

Who’s the front runner to take over at Sam Houston State after current coach retires at season end.

Any other possible changes coming? I don’t see as many this year as last.

Troy will be open. South Alabama is a possibility if the AD wants to stop the bleeding. Jimmy K to Troy is gaining speed!

If a small number of fans (a/k/a fanatics) have their way, Murphy will be run off from Alabama, along with Habetz.  SMDH!  It is definitely a what have you done for me lately mentality over there.

Reviewing this thread a little . The above is true.

The truth is, a MLB hitters' goal is to swing on a plane that produces a trajectory to produce a home-run, no matter the pitch............

What's funny is how Slaught's supporters make exceptions for low pitches..........[smile] 


Exit trajectory on a low pitch with an efficient swing is more a question of timing.

Epstein understands some things. I'd rather not talk about "rotational" hitting since every guru who uses the word has their own definition. I'd say compare everything anyone says about hitting to lots of slow motion video of the best in the world letting that be your BS detector. Combine that with a basic understanding of momentum and start there. That's the process I went through and the first three people I'd let mess with my kid's swing would be Paul Nyman, Steve Englishbey and Mike Lotief. The other smart ones I might mention learned from these guys. Just my experience. YMMV but I couldn't call BS on these guys using video of elite hitters and I surely tried.

"Rotational" and "linear" are marketing buzzwords and that's all they are!


Yeah, can't disagree since every new guru redefines them.

Daft, kook stuff by you. Maybe you DON'T need a dictionary, or an eighth-grade physics class, after all... maybe you just need a pair of glasses


Yeah if it weren't for momentum half his weight would be on each foot in this still, but it's not for the brief moment at this point. Bonds was much more back with more weight on his back foot than many others but he still got his weight off the back foot and into the front foot during rotation as evidenced by the subsequent rock back onto the back foot. Others are up on the back toe or even have the back foot in the air like some pics and vids I've seen of Clemente. Clearly all are different in degree but the same in function.

Momentum is a tricky thing. You can't see it but you need to understand it. Some people seem to do so intuitively and some just can't seem to grasp it.

I should add his mass is clearly centered over a spot somewhere near the middle between his feet. Momentum has clearly though unweighted his back foot. A force plate would show a lot on his front foot and almost nothing on his back foot at the point in time the still represents even though his mass is centered.

Runs out of momentum.

I think the problem here is a question of defining terms. It sounds like you guys are not differentiating between mass and weight.

Brock is stepping down? Dammitt! I liked having someone out there who looked older than me and I liked talking to him. Excellent teacher of defenses.
