Frame #5 -- Contact Position
A batter's form at the contact position provides an insight into the quality and efficiency of his/her swing mechanics. If the swing was not initiated with the correct forces in Frame #1, the batter cannot attain the correct power position in Frame #5. By Frame 5, all rotational and torque energy has been expended. The lead-knee and leg rotation is complete and the lead-leg is fully extended. The pulling back of the lead-shoulder and arm toward the catcher is completed (105-degree position). The back-arm and forearm have fully rotated to the "L" position with the forearm pointing toward the pitcher. The palm of the top-hand is facing upward and the palm of the bottom-hand facing downward.
