Default broken bat HR

How does anyone hit a HR with a broken bat?

I saw Frank Howard do it. I also have a memory, although maybe it's not accurate, of seeing him hit a home run on a checked swing.

It should be noted that about half of the kinetic energy present on any given home run is generated by the 95 MPH pitch...so, as Harper's bat flies through the strike zone, the additional force generated to the point of impact is usually enough to create the desired results...the bat's surface, even while breaking, provided enough resistance to add up to the home run.

My head hurts...I'd better not get this analytical again for a while.

MY BIG CONCERNS ABOUT AMERICA:

Internally- We spend too much time assuring our rights without learning the responsibilities that should accompany them.
Externally - No matter how much we claim to take the higher moral ground, we have neither respected nor attempted to understand other cultures.
