You have to have your bat in your hand for it to be a legal hit.
If your bat is in your hand and you hit it with anything up to your wrist it is a legal hit as long you only hit it once. This is very difficult to do as usually the bal hits both your hand and the bat which means it is a double hit and you lose the point.
But to answer your question simply, in the situation you described you would lose the point.
