Releasing the top hand after contact allows for the head to remain "down" on the point of contact. This is why Charlie Lau was an advocate of the top hand release. Look at George Brett's swing.
That makes no sense at all. How can something that happens after contact effect something that happened before?
It may be better to release, it may not, but that's not the argument for it.
I don't argue hitting mechanics, but can't help but point out faulty logic.
