Refers to the portion of the lane bounded by ten boards on both sides.



Inside out armswing -
1) A setup somewhat toward center of the body.
2) The pushaway moves toward the center of the body. The swing is forced to loop out around the body rather than straight back as in the traditional pendulum swing.

The forward portion of the swing is again muscled not forward, but out to the right sending the ball from left to right.
