Step aside Russ Canzler, there’s a new slugger in town! This week, the SWB RailRiders longtime batting coach, Butch Wynegar, took me to the RailRiders cage and taught me how to hit like a big leaguer. It was an hour crash course, as a learned everything from how to hold the bat, to my swing, follow-through, and footwork. Butch was a great coach who started me on the tee, and quickly advanced me into hitting overhand pitches. I missed a lot of balls, but that’s baseball. After all, hitting 3 of 10 pitches would make me one of the best in the game! I learned that what matters most, is making your hits count.
