Hitting Advantage

Good players always look for an edge.

Can there be an edge when hitting at the bottom of the order? Yes!

If you are a 5-hole or below hitter, you get 4 or more ‘mental’ at-bats your teammates don’t get.

Being in the dugout is a great opportunity for you to scout your opponent.

Timing, mannerisms, infield positioning are all things you can use to find an advantage.

As a player, ALWAYS look for an advantage. If you aren’t and your opponent is, your opponent has the edge.
