Just curious if you like the way his students swings look in the before and after?
Do you agree with the dry swing advice he is giving to help fix the swing? If so what difference does it make what he calls it?Definitely wasn't. Efastball I know you have a lot of great insight and knowledge but you are making a joke out of yourself with these bat drag posts.
I concede for the record that if you have any girls that are 6'6" and 245 lbs, bat drag may not be a problem for them.What is this then? The 34 in the top left indicates it was his 34th homer of the season. Bad angle?
I think you go overboard with the "horrific bat drag" diagnoses.
Agreed. If these are from a side angle, this is bat drag. A few MLB hitters (out of hundreds) have a frame of bat drag (in some of their swings), but then they overcome their poor leverage position in the next frame and get their hands in front of their elbow.
I'm just saying you can't just freeze at one frame and say bat drag(it's not really bat drag in this position.. nothing is being dragged IMO).. do you believe the OP's hitter in this thread overcomes the initial bat drag? Or does it continue one throughout the swing?I am listening to comments though and I see what you are saying.
Many consider bat drag to have occurred only if you don't overcome it, and you drag the bat all the way through the zone through to contact. This is what most kids do, and you don't see this with MLB hitters. So they can't be bat dragging, right?
I am saying here that bat drag occurs initially at the moment of the swing forward phase (toe touch to contact) and continues until it's corrected (by 1% of people), or through to contact (99% of people).
I have never thought of it in these terms before, but this is probably a good way to describe it.
As is typical, MLB hitters dont demo their swing the way they actually swing in a game. Here he is per
