I’m sorry and I really did do my homework by searching this topic on LTP before bringing it up. I think the NPA would say that “staying back” is not really supported by science (maybe that’s a bit strong but I think they might say that staying back will happen as a function of proper mechanics; that is, it’s not a “teach”). Roger, et al, please correct me if I have that wrong. Anyway, my son is constantly being told that he is leaving velocity on the table by not staying back. Honestly, I don’t even know what that means. That is, what is staying back? Here’s a picture of Jon Lester. Is this staying back? Specifically, note that he leads with the hips and, yet, his upper body is “tilted” or “back”. I need all you gurus to straighten me out here…I’m going crazy hearing this all the time.
Thanks, as always, guys.
