    Hands are too much to the ball. You are giving away your pop. You want to be on top and inside.

        What does he have left to drive the ball? Arms. Body is stronger.

            My son used to swing like you do. He would hit a lot of singles and the occasional line drive. But we knew that good high school defenses would cut that in half. Now he can wait longer and drives the ball very well. He weighs 140 lbs. Last week he drove a ball 400 feet over the centerfield fence off of a curve ball.

              I like the swing, but its a still pic and can vary vastly from video. If the swing is correct, then this is a good quoate, but I add to it.

              Not only rotating, but rotating in the strongest degrees of Range of Motion for the Lower back. I least I hope thats what it looks like in real time.

                Is this a fair comparison?

                If you really want to get PICKY, the only difference is his barrel is "above" his hands, your barrel is "even/below" your hands. But considering everything else is almost identical, I wouldn't worry about it too much...basically, don't change anything, you're in the optimal hitting position - if you can get your body to figure out how to get to this point (which you obviously have), you have hitting figured out mechanically; very nice.

                  I'd say about the only thing "wrong" with this swing is your lead arm isn't doing much "leading," it's kind of "fallen off" and taken itself out of the equation (which means, I'm guessing, you probably rolled over and pulled/hooked the ball down the line rather than drove it to the gap...?).
                  Notice how these guys keep their front arms "high" (leading - ON the swing plane) at this point.
                  - But their hands might be "too much to the ball," too...

                          straight grain-

                          I think you are making some useful observations. the way i would look at it is that in the more expert batter clips, something earlier in the swing "resisted" so there was more stretch/load of the torso which prevented the hips/legs from opening so much.

                          Then the bat was turned by uncoiling of the torso, not getting arms involved which then produces the "slight upswing" as Williams called it.

                          The kids do not have the resistance to keep the upper body back and create a stretch and fire that synchs as well with the hips.

                          This is evidence of "slippage" due to lack of upper body ressitance/control in the sense of the MLB pattern as opposed to the slippage taked about in PCR circles.

                            Might be good might be bad. Only thing anyone can really say about this from a still is, "depends". Anything else is at best a swag.

                              Here is a simple question: Do you direct your hands to the ball? or inside of the ball? Your statement that you hit a lot of singles, tells me you direct your hands to the ball.
