Unbelievable Year….What’s Our Takeaway?


Raph Rhymes is on pace to shatter the LSU record books.  At a time when the BBCOR bats are supposed to hinder production at the plate, he is actually chasing a .500 season average.  A recent article published about the SEC league leader at the plate has a few quotes that I wanted to pass along.

I pitch batting practice to him every day,” LSU coach Paul Mainieri said. “If I throw him a pitch inside, he pulls it. If I throw him a pitch outside, he just slaps it to right field. If I throw it down the middle he hits it back up the middle. He never gets bored doing that.”

“The barrel is in the zone for a really long period of time,” Sanchez said. “Even if he guesses wrong on what type of pitch it is speed-wise, he has more margin for error.”

Keeping the barrel in the zone for as long as possible and being able to hit the ball to all fields is what all hitters should strive to do.  Check out the full article below. Hope everyone is having a great week. Let’s all Hitmorelinedrives!!
