Re: Poll: Should the half/slow/partial swings in this video be legal?
Looking back on the three swings a few times, i've changed my opinion on the one you hit. I dont really know how to justify it with the written rule, but just going on the eye test I feel like yours should have been a hit. With the SS and MI playing so far deep on fields that were already stretched out, you should be allowed to take a full, fluid swing at 60% and make them pay. If they play normal SS depth, thats an out all day. The first one Williams hit was salty AF, but still a half swing and shouldnt have been a hit. The third guy looked like a fool with that swing and has no business being rewarded with a hit.
Just my 2 cents
