    I am right hand dominant with more power batting left but it was nearly impossible to strike me out batting left. It was only after my playing days were over (I stopped after Mickey Mantle so 16? and switched to track for HS) that the vision in my left eye was awful. Had I started wearing contacts I likely could have kept playing.

    I'm not that good. But when I do get the chance to play I try to take some shots right handed so that hopefully I can be ambidextrous at it someday and open up shot possibilities

That's messed up because "should be" says contact hitters (me left) normally stand open and power righties normally stand closed at the plate.

    My then optometrist was at game one day and explained what I didn't realize: I am hugely right eye dominant and my body was adjusting to get that right eye to where it could see best. In this case seeing the ball was more important than which hand was where on the bat when it came to batting average.


    All this, this whole draw circles, open jars, swing sticks, conversation just lends to one of my theorems of life: Humans are strange critters.
    You see things from the right. Surprise.

    Torque is force applied in a rotational space.

    Ouch. That's not easy.

    I hate the ND CC on-range where you have to shoot non-dominant hand. Left hand shooting, right eye dominant; firing a semi-auto handgun I hate the feeling of the slide coming back at the middle of my face (when it usually 'feels' just off the right cheekbone).

    Now, here's the question for everyone. How do you unscrew a stuck lid on a jar?
    Hockey: right hand low
    Golf: right hand low
    Shovel or broom: start left hand low

    Jar? Left on the lid, right on the precious container full of peanut butter. But I find the left is a hold action and right is delivering the torque. (Yes, I just opened a jar of peanut butter for this reason alone.)

    Jar. Steadies. I mean I guess I'm kinda turning both hands when I do it if you want to get technical.

    I shot left-handed but am mostly right handed in other sports: batting, swinging golf club, throwing anything. The jar question is interesting. On first try, I hold the jar in my right hand, but the torque is applied by both, the jar hand twisting it clockwise toward me and the lid hand trying to turn it counterclockwise away., so both hands are apply torque. I think I do it this way because my right hand is usually my controlling hand.

    But I'm not an engineer like you, so I don't know what "active torque" means.

    btw, if I can't get it loose, I shed some pride and give it to the iron-handed one in our household.
    Re: torque I meant the one that the brain thinks is doing the twisting. Because you're right, it's being applied by both hands, I guess I just have one hand that's trying to twist and the other hand that's just trying to act as a fixed point. :-)
