A Two-Legged Hitter is a hitter who uses both legs in their swing, employing the entirety of the High Level Pattern.
Both Power and Adjustability.
The idea is to create swing that excels both when it comes to Power and Average.
Albert Pujols started out as a Two-Legged Hitter.
However, after leaving the Cardinals, Pujols became more of a One-Legged Hitter. That explains why, while he does still hit for Power, he no longer hits for Average.

Two-Legged Hitting is one way of describing the High Level Swing.
It's one way of describing the first half of Ted Williams' swing.
Ted Williams, advocated Rotational Hitting.
Rather than moving linearly, getting a big weight shift, staying closed, and leading with the hands, instead advocated a minimal stride and rotating into the pitch with the hips leading the hands.
The idea was to power the swing with the large muscles of the core and legs rather than the small muscles of the arms, hands, and forearms.
However, and as Ted Williams admitted, the advent of the Slider changed everything for him; it made a One-Legged Swing no longer viable.
One-Legged = Coil
The reason why people focus on One-Legged Hitting is because it can help hitters learn a key concept...
However, there's more to the High-Level Pattern than Coil and Power, as Albert Pujols' career demonstrates clearly.
