Is that a 1 handed drill? Do they swing or just land in the position and stop? Is this working on correcting bat drag?Here is a free drill to greatly improve your swing. Stride to toe touch, and pull the back elbow like a bow. At toe touch, make sure the rear forearm is flat. the bat head is pointed up, and your front knee is very bent. Guaranteed or your money back.
It’s the end of the “style” part of the swing, and the beginning of the “substance”.
It’s not necessary for everyone to look the same before this part of the swing, but most good hitters get to that position before launching the barrel.
Sheffield with his bat wiggle, Youkalis (iirc) with his hands by his ears - they all get to a bent front leg, flat(ish) rear forearm, and a front shoulder tilted down.

Yes. Methodologies have never worked throughout a team or organization. There are few absolutes. A certain position at toe touch is not universal.
It may not be universal, but.... it's pretty darn close.

The ONLY thing and really the ONLY THING these have in common is chest positioning. food for thought.
I very much disagree with that. They're not all exactly identical (though some really do appear to be), but I see a lot more than chest positioning.
A certain position at toe touch is not universal.
I'll take 'Myths from 1999' for $200 Alex.
