Buster Olney discusses the key to Nate McLouth’s hitting success this spring training:
Nate McLouth has never discussed hitting mechanics with the Braves’ new hitting coach, Larry Parrish. The only thing they’ve talked about getting McLouth back to being aggressive at the plate, and so in his at-bats this spring, he’s gone to the plate with a more focused approach: He looks for the ball in a particular part of the strike zone early in the count, and looks to do damage. If the ball is not in that spot, he takes the pitch. This is working for him.
Honest question: Who does this not work for?
