I used one for a short time when I was in little league because I had jammed my thumb and it was all swollen. It did help a lot with the sting of the bat.

Does anyone have the other slow motion swings form the derby? I know they did this with Uggla and I think Braun also.

Why does his left hand come off the bat at the end, is it supposed to?

Yes since he is fully extending his arms through his swing.

Yah. The ball has also completely left the bat by that point.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.

Yeah, I'm not going to pretend to be an expert or anything but a lot of people contend that keeping two hands on the bat can cut off your swing and causes your hands to decelerate too early
