Of course. I think when you get your foot down (regardless of whether you want to be 1-legged, 2-legged or 10-legged) is probably a better measure of being on time then when you start. Your start is dictated by that in combination with your particular style.

Not so, forget about the front foot. If you are using the front foot the ball will be by you before you can get the gun out of the holster.

You guys do swing a bat against a live ball don’t you? It’s healthy to swing the bat.

I am going to chalk this up to you having a shitty day.

For the record I was comparing foot down (in comparison to where the ball is) to foot up as a metric to determine if somebody is on time. Even Rich acknowledges hitters rarely launch with their foot still in the air. Also yes I know your answer to this is going to be they need to be ready to swing at release so no need to respond.

No, Pattar that is not what you
meant or what you said. You did explain your point this time.

I would like to see you post anything of relevance. lol

We all know that is never going happen.

You said you take live swings. I would like to see them. Especially with how valuable you say they are, and with the sense of authority with which you post.

You don’t even have look at the swing. You know how easy it is timing wise. When you mess up, everything is rushed and good contact is poor.

It’s pretty easy. See for self and if you want video it, video it and share. I’m busy, going to start working out and swinging. I will decide when to post my swing.

I’m going to swing at lessons (with the student) and do the exercises (Goata, core) with the student.
