Rotational versus Linear Hitting

Talking to a recent graduate that played softball in the Akron area, she had a rotational swing and was constantly being encouraged to change to a linear swing.

What do you think? Is a linear swing better for softball?

I know a "hitting instructor" who claims to teach "linear" hitting and says it's Superior to "rotational." .

The thing is he can't define exactly what makes a swing linear or rotational.

I think most swings are a hybrid. Seems that watching college softball, there are more hitters trending towards rotational.

Here's another.

My kid had a high school coach who claimed to have played some college ball. She told me "Her swing is too rotational. Needs to be more linear."

So what's the difference?

She said "Well.. my swing was rotational when I went to college. They worked with me and we made it linear. My average went wwwaaayyy up.."

Ok,,, but what does that mean?

"It's just different. One is rotational. One is linear.."

And the conversation sort of just went like that.

Sometimes I think there are people who want to make themselves appear more knowledgeable than the person they are talking too. Then they look a little sheepish when the person they are talking to already knows about these topics.

There s a difference even though most can’t articulate it. Here is a good summary.
