      I'll agree with Jake, the posture and rotation need alot of work. Something tells me, though, if you get your posture down better, the rotation will start to work itself out...

        No expert, but something touched on by many good coaches/ instructors like charlie laue jr talk about the check swing.

        Watch posada check his swing. Get everything going each time:

          It looks like you need to minimise hip movement and focus primarily on hand extension through the zone.

            I agree with Jake and Straight. You look good until you start to rotate but you need to learn HOW to rotate and how to do that from and with good posture. I'll give you a link but it's probably going to take some discussion and pointing before you see it. Sonny, I again disagree with you. His hip rotation is somewhere between awful and nonexistent right now. Why would you want to further minimize that? What you describe doesn't sound like any elite hitter I've watched.

            Suddartha, study the nature of the rotation on here http://imageevent.com/siggy/hitting/...lcp2i01.lion_s compared to what you do, if you would, and many on here will discuss any questions you may have. OTOH, if you are hitting as well as you want to at the highest level you aspire to, don't worry about it and just go have fun. Otherwise you have a lot of work to do changing movement patterns.

              Would everyone agree that the attached images kind of "tell the whole story" so to speak?

              Having looked at the film a few more times, it also looks as though your posture problem possibly stems from a lack of good weight shift.Your lower front-side is going forward, and your enitre top half is going backward.

                So you want to minimize his bat speed?

                  No matter how many times many of us show you video that contradicts what you say, you continue to post erroneous statements like the one above.

                  Ted Williams, 2 kinesiologists with PhD's who studied the swing, and several physicists with PhD's and several MLB hitting coaches all agree that it works different from what you say, yet you still make posts as if you have it right.

                    Certainly shows the bad result of a bad start.
