Your dumb... Their is a reason the lower teams get boat raced every Friday night at every tournament, the upper players are just better. I can't speak for every player, but I prepare for the smoky differently then other tournaments. For the 2 weeks prior, I hit every ball hard, and try to hit every ball over the fence. I still feel I have enough power and consistency to hit more hr then I miss. Last weekend was no different, my missed hrs were hard hits and when I elevated one it went out. We never prepare for balls to be worse then our beat up BP balls. We expect the same consistency of ball. Trying to just hit holes for hits is more difficult at the smoky as the 80ft bases allows the best defenders in the country to cut balls off and make plays.
Now going into Cincy on the smaller fields and limited hrs the approach will change
