iffy check swing for a perfecto
i dont even think it was iffy. definite strike to me. he's offering to hit the pitch, which is the only thing that matters at the MLB level. his arms are fully extended, hips rotating, and he's pretty committed to hit but got fooled big time by the curve. i think he's definitely committed to trying to hit the ball, albeit poorly.
NCAA has wording that the bat has to cross the front hip, and high school has something similar if i remember correctly. its a swing in both of those levels as well.
