You're down to your last strike. The pitcher has effectively kicked sand in your face. In the worst case scenario you are way down in the count -- like O-2 -- and the pitcher is actually looking at the on deck circle to see who has to face next. Then somebody from your dugout yells "hey, you're tough with two buddy! Tough with two."
Let's face it, some people are tougher than others with two strikes. The question I'm seeking answers to in an upcoming Hardball Magazine article is what is the best approach to two-strike hitting? Should you choke up? Move in? Widen your stance? Or should you do nothing at all? Do you change your mechanics? Your mental approach? What do you do and how do you think it helps you?
