    Default The Science of Hitting



    I just bought the "Science of Hitting" and am really enjoying the book. Is this still considered the Bible for hitting? I have the revised version, but was wondering if there are areas of this book that you would revise if you could.

    The part I would revise is the part where Williams talks about how to hit low pitches. Pages 66 and 67 (corrections and adjustments) are widely known as false. Great hitters tilt at using side bend to get their shoulders, front arm forearm, and barrel in line with each other for an optimized contact position.

    Unless you're Yankees Hitting Coach Kevin Long...in which case you teach something else...

    Great book ,but science has proved some of it wrong. Video has changed hitting in many ways.

    Thanks for the answers! I didn't think I'd ever get a response.
