"Of course its in the hips Cortney. But in hitting it's the muscles that resist rotation in the core/ hips. The reasr hip and rear leg is the key in hitting. The rear hip times the ball by applying hip or core resistence and the msucles that are…"

"All power for any athletic movement comes from the hips.  Take the legs out somehow and try to hit.  Sit on a bucket, hit from your knees, stand on one leg, I bet you can still hit.  I can't try it at the moment but will when i…"

J Edwards replied to ron van redick's discussion Bat drag problem
"You can talk all you want about what they say. That rear hip is NOT pushing that rear leg inward like that. Not a chance. That rear leg is in a battle with that rear hip. That rear hip is fighting the leg. Its resisting the leg. That rear hip is…"

Michael Richards replied to ron van redick's discussion Bat drag problem
"Well yeah!  Of course it will.  The front foot is involved in a stride or the weight is shifted to the back leg to start the forward motion.  But what I said was that the front plate will have a reading over twice as high as the rear…"

"And I'll say it again and again. You pitched by powering your pitches with your rer hip. Yeah ok. I have some land in the ocean to sell you too."

Kip Gross replied to ron van redick's discussion Bat drag problem
"I'll say it again and you can take it any way you like but the players and coaches that I know and talk to say it's the rear hip and not the rear leg that powers the swing. For me it's really tough to say the rear leg drives the hip…"

Michael Richards replied to ron van redick's discussion Bat drag problem
"The left hip comes back with the front leg extension.  The rear hip does not drive foreward.  The rear leg is involved only in the initiation of the swing during the stride.  This is clearly visible.  About 100% of body weight is…"

"Bingo Kip. But the best all use the leg to power rotation. The difference is they know it. That's what separates them. I know my share as well. LOL I also know that what they say is not always what they did. Just what they thought they did."

Ron I am sorry I did not get back to you sooner. Balance is key, in my opinion. Baseball is actually a waste down dominated sport, and again in my opinion this is very true for hitting. I do have some drills for this, hard to talk about, but if you work at focusing on what is happening below the belt, you will find ways to not lunge out at the ball with the upper half.
