Re: Hitting middle today. Vs yesterday
I'm not going to sit here and say that there aren't head hunters out there, or people that intentionally try to hit pitchers... however, personally when I get to the plate I'm looking specifically at the infield defense first to see where they're aligned. A lot of times, shortstops and second basemen will play in the holes and that leaves the 5 man to pretty much pick a side, which leaves the middle of the field pretty wide open. Hitters going through that hole sometimes hit lasers by the pitcher.. whatta ya gonna do?
