From what I remember when those first came out (early-mid 80's?) the bent handle was supposed to have something to do with changing the geometry of the pivot point or moment arm and that was supposed to let the batter create more torque or leverage.

For you guys that live in snowy climes, it's the same principle behind those curved handled snow shovels you see today.
