Re: "Slight Uppercuts" vs "Level Swings" and "Chopping Wood"
Yeah,if you saw my dog you would know right away he wouldnt be good at anything. We dont know how much time was spent practicing. But is there a proper technique. Williams says Cobb was wrong yet both were tremendous hitters. Bretts approach was completely differnt yet he was a tremendous hitter. Williams couldnt teach his approach to his Senators/Rangers to become better hitters. I still say this is because these great hitters were born with the capacity to hit just like a great surgeon, lawyer, musician,etc.
I dont beleive the average player could spend the same amount of time and learn the same technique as Williams would ever be the hitter Williams was. There are too many other variables involved that just are not teachable.
