Interesting quote from Craig Counsell:

“What I’ve really come to see, and we’ve been talking about this, is that the theory you’re talking about — launch angles, and such — really goes to show that Ted Williams had the genius book of all time. He was basically preaching the same philosophy. All we’ve done is updated the terminology. Ted Williams didn’t use the term ‘launch angle’ but he was expressing the exact same thing in The Science of Hitting. He talked about the way to go at a baseball — his term was ‘slight uppercut’ — and that’s the way to create those angles.”
