So if you were going to throw a punch and I’m not advocating fighting, but if you wanted to really throw a hard punch, what would you do. Would you stand here like this and just throw a little punch or would you pull your hand back and come all the way through. I think the answer’s simple. We’d want to pull our hand all the way back, and really get into it.

The same is true in hitting. We call it our load, our trigger, our take away. Whatever you want to call it, this is how the hitter gets his weight from his balanced position, gets it back behind the ball. There’s a lot of different ways to do this. The most common way is done in the legs. This is actually what I did.
