Besides, I'm pretty sure that any reference to "swing" when referring to baseball intrinsically includes all stages or phases. Same thing goes with golf. When you talk about a golf swing, you're not just talking about the down swing.
If that's what you mean, then that makes it much less "amazing" and "impossible but true" than you indicated in your original comment, IMO. So a hitter cocks his hands back before the pitch is thrown. What's so amazing about that?
Hey, I never said I agreed with the "amazing" and "impossible" part.
Sorry Jose, my bad. A case of mistaken identity. I'm easily confused... For example, I thought that was Mickey RIVERS in your avatar.
Anyaway, obviously I should have said "than mak1277 indicated in his original comment." My humblest apologies...
