Yes gets to the same launch position. Hand/arms reach the same launch position, same basic position.
Not seeing anything unusual here. Bat head moving back towards catcher. Typical TTB.
All of the bat wagging he does just prior to the start of this GIF is just to get into the same position as all other MLB hitters.
I do like the thought of a dynamic slingshot.Yes sequence, perfect pictures, positions and sequence of a high level swing. Very nice, sling shot effect.
Great swing for a big or small hitter.I do like the thought of a dynamic slingshot.
When the core gets primed and torqued. The slingshot effect is the result.
How does one create this effect? Why does Sheff not feel the need for ‘effort’ in his hands/arms until so late in his sequence?
It appears to me that in the first video the hands do make take a downward path as they bat is working back. The barrel is getting turned but over a greater distance.Why would he TTB immediately on a high pitch and not on a low pitch? Are we sure that's what's happening here or is there more adjustment with the lower pitch leading to this kind of perception and conclusion?
Yeah but girls are swinging drop 9 or 10's so there is that. Plus Sheff and BB were 10 YO boys at one point...Too many girls are overcoached for whatever reason. I see whole teams of 10U girls who have almost the same swing..like a bunch of robots.Why don't we see more hitter try to mimic Shef? Or Bonds for that matter. Cause to do that crazy stuff requires VERY strong forearms and an very different timing mechanism which would be very hard to teach. What is a natural style for him is not going to work for the average 10 to 14 yo girl.
