Re: Softball Application

>>> I'm a first time visitor to your site and noticed you mention that your concepts can be used for baseball as well as softball. As I play slowpitch softball, I'm interested if your concepts apply to this game or if your reference was strictly for fast-pitch softball.

Look forward to your response and digging into your site more. <<<

Hi Jonny

Welcome to the site. -- A few years ago I watched a softball game between a slow pitch all- star team and a team made up of major league baseball players. The baseball players were getting their butts stomped. When the score got to around 12 to 2, I decided to tape the game and see what the heck was going on. -- If my memory serves me correctly, the slow pitch team hit 16 home runs.

I found to my great surprise that most of the softball players were using good rotational mechanics while only 2 or 3 of the baseball hitters (Ken Griffey Jr for one) exhibited equal or better mechanics -most of the selected baseball players used more linear type mechanics. --- When I watched the game last year, the score was more balanced and so was the number of players on each team exhibiting rotational mechanics.
