By creating torque, or separation, in the front shoulder and hip, the hitter is able to use his/her body to stop their swing (check swing), and it allows the hitter to have a larger hitting area on the bat.
- Many younger hitters will start their swing to avoid getting beat by velocity only to find themselves way out in front of themselves. In this scenario, you’ll see the hitter slow their swing down to try and “touch” the ball. This will not allow the hitter to make hard contact.
- If you’re off time and/or off location and there’s less than two strikes on you, it’s better to take that pitch (even if it’s a strike) than to take a bad swing. You still have strikes to work with.
- Bad swings cause bad contact more times than not. Bad contact results in outs more times than not.
- With Mass & Adjustability, we’re creating torque or separation between the front shoulder and the front hip. This action allows the hitter to create resistance with their hands and hold torque for a longer period of time or until the hitter decides to release his swing.
- Torque built up in torso makes bat “heavier” or creates more density in the bat (Mass)
- Torque allows you to not have to hit the ball on the barrel to have success due to increased density. In other words, in lengthens the barrel for the hitter.
- Torque allows you to hit the ball hard to all fields.
