This week I would like to share one of the many great pieces of advice I got from the legend, Charlie Manual. Charlie has always been known for his great leadership skills, but many don’t know how he leads, especially hitters. One of the biggest and profound comments Charlie told us was always to KNOW THYSELF! What that meant was if you were a guy who was capable of driving the ball then learn how to get a pitch and drive the ball. If you were a player who was able to utilize your speed, then utilize your speed, there would be no reason for you to drive the ball. If you were a patient hitter and a bit more selective than most, then be selective. Charlie was always good for keeping you in check and made sure we got the best out of what we could do!
