PYS5 - Difference between "Power Hitter" and "Ar
The explanations of each in Japanese are virtually idential (there's one or two extra kanji in one of them) and I can't figure out what it is, and looks like it has something to do with how the ball carries?

Difference is Power Hitter makes it so it's a lot easier for you to hit the ball off the sweet part of the bat while in power batting. Should be reserved for 35+ homer guys. I think it's more like a 45+ homer thing, but that's just me. Artist or Archist, on the other hand, means you're an uppercut hitter who routinely pops the ball up because you're trying to lift it into the seats.

Power Hitter=elite sluggers
Archist=One-dimensional free swingers

This is a site about Pro Yakyu (Japanese Baseball), not about who the next player to go over to MLB is. It's a community of Pro Yakyu fans who have come together to share their knowledge and opinions with the world. It's a place to follow teams and individuals playing baseball in Japan (and Asia), and to learn about Japanese (and Asian) culture through baseball.

It is my sincere hope that once you learn a bit about what we're about here that you will join the community of contributors.
