Who is your favorite hitter and why?

I especially enjoy the discussion of linear swing vs rotational swings. I have a son who plays high school baseball and will be a three year starter at the high school level.

Jay, thanks for your feedback on my son's swing.  He and I went over it together tonight with some of the other feed back and we have set some new goals.  Patrick, my son, has asked that we send you a video in a couple of months so you can see his progress.


Thanks again,
