OFF season Hitting drills
I have often been asked. How do you do what you do? I am often confused as to whether they mean:

my ability to find the best/cheapest buffets in town
manage to ask for a runner before I hit
stay married to an absolute saint
or hit

So I thought I would post this link for the hitting part, the rest I am protecting under the trade secrets provision in Federal law.

Does it have to do with beating the tar out of a wooden light pole in PHX?
I hear that really increases bat speed

I resemble that remark....Long time ago and I never said a word to anybody...just me being frustrated.

I can still remember the first base umpire saying....what the hell is that noise?

My answer......oh, that would be my catcher that flew out last inning. He's beating the crap out of that light pole down the left field line;-)

Memories.... Now if could only get that leatard out of my memory bank.....

Tim,
I have to admit, that was some memory. So was the light pole...or was it a telephone pole?

It was one of the Huge lights poles in between the fields. Not one of my stellar moments. That was not the last time I was a horses ass, but pretty darn close.

The closest you will see me getting upset now is if I hit a ball poorly, you will get a Dad gummit and thats about it.

Maturity has its advantages...LOL...that and bats with no warranty.

Phx had large wooden light poles....

The funniest part was...

After Mike did his workout on the pole, he threw his beat up bat into a nearby garbage can.

I picked it out when no one was watching......waited for BP the next morning...
Then...as everyone got loose...

I Said.....oh Mike, you forgot something after yesterday's game.

I then pulled his destroyed bat out and gave it back to him....

Needless to say.....there were many laughs.

Mike.....I am sure there were a few dang gum it's before that long walk down the left field foul line.

I can attest to the fact Mike is getting calmer. Last year, when I had just started with the team and didn't know them yet, Mike hit an absolutely screaming line drive that the shortstop flagged playing half way out in left field. As he put the bat away, I just couldn't resist ( I swear the Devil made me say it). I looked at him and said "Nice pop up to short". After the stunned look he actually started laughing. Now he never lets me alone either....
