As a player, i was a poor hitter but great bunter like pitchers
had to be before DH's.
I learned a great deal about hitting from 2 Hall of Famers: Earle Combs and Lew Fonseca. At 65 years of age, I'm now the hitter I should have been 50 years ago. I'm a great hitting instructor myself. I get results and my teams annually hit .330 or better. I've met and talked with many of the greats like Don Slaught, Charlie Lau, Rob Ellis, Jim Swanke, and Mike Epstein. Believe me these are knowledgable men.
If you pitch, what type of pitcher are you... Power? Ground ball, Fly ball, Knuckleball?
Strike Out guy with outstanding curves , hard slider and 85 -86
Of course today, I'm 65 with just good form, and good breaking

Miguel Cabrerra, anyone that win the Triple crown is on top of the game. Quality contact with line drive to the gaps.
