Because of the wide range of interests, some of which conflict, we have decided to split the old single hitting forum into two forums. This idea comes at the suggestion of Batsics1; we thank him for the suggestion.
This forum is designed for technical and theoretical discussion of hitting. In this forum, any source material to support your points is allowed. In other words, you can quote Epstein, Englishbey, Nyman or any other expert (including those from other sports) you want to support your point. You can post video of MLB players or high-level softball players and discuss their technique down to the nth degree.
The purpose is to help advance technical knowledge and foster an understanding of what makes a high-level swing. It is not for the faint of heart. Although all the "no personal attacks" rules still apply, and this forum will still be moderated, those posting and reading here can and should expect that emotions will run high at times as there are some very entrenched views. It may become uncomfortable. Read at your own risk.
