I remember as a kid watching Roberto Clemente in Pittsburgh. He would exhaust pitchers. It seemed sometimes he would hit twenty foul balls in a row with that perfect graceful swing. Sure a foul ball is a strike but if you hit a lot of them, the pitcher gets tired and eventually gives up something to hit. Maybe you won’t get the hit, maybe it will be the next hitter in the order but if you keep hitting fouls one things is for sure and that is eventually the pitcher will become exhausted. The Yankees are very good at doing this. You can buy a print of this image on my commercial site by clicking here.
