Every good hitter has the hands above the rear foot at toe touch (launch). Or at least most good hitters are in that position.At toe touch, his hands are deeper than most....about over his rear foot. Longer swing and less adjustability to off speed usually results in more K and rollover grounders.
Shawn, on this swing he hits the ball 478 ft. There's probably very little wrong with this swing that would cause ground balls or a 236 avg.
This swing resulted in a 478 ft (I'm not 100% sure if that is correct, it was a bomb though) HR. Do you see anything from this swing that might create a .236 career hitter?
Yes I considered the fact that the swing would be very good to hit it 478ft. I think several people embraced this fact and gave their view on his swing/approach.Shawn, on this swing he hits the ball 478 ft.

Maybe post a swing that resulted in a gb so we could compare. This is nit picking a monster swing to find a defect when, result wise, it could be held up as a model swing.
As a nit, he lands really violently/awkwardly on his front leg and that could cause head movements.
