    Isn't he holding it too high? That's called "choking the bat," right?

    "Choking up" would give a batter a shorter, quicker swing that improves ball contact. You position your hand around 3-4" from the base/knob of the bat. One would choke up if a hit is required to move players around the bases.

    I would choke up as a way to adjust my swing to time with the pitches. Often when you are hitting strikes, your swing is "behind the pitch". Moving up your hand position can help you connect with the pitch.

    I have a hard time imagining that that guy ever strikes out. ... icon_wink.gif
