I am 6'3" 240 but I like to see the small guys mash. My technique is similar, with a few minor differences. I don't load, I coil my front shoulder and front knee in. I do this because this technique gives me a spinning pendulum action with my hips and shoulders. ( As described in Ted Williams Book, "The Science of Hitting.") I keep the bat back and up, above my backside shoulder. I use a full overlap grip like Brett Helmer, and Scott Kirby. Palm up, Palm down at contact, with serious speed.
