The Launch Phase of the Baseball Swing

The Pushing and Pulling Action of the Arms and Shoulders

The pushing and pulling action of the arms and shoulders refers to the individual movements that each arm and shoulder produce on the bat handle through their respective hands during the swing. Since each hand grabs the bat handle from a different direction as seen here, the force from the respective arm and shoulder that it is generating on the bat will be different.
