Darin Ruf Seamlessly Transitions from Swinging Poorly to Thinking Deepy about how Poor that Swing Was

Easy, Darin.

Slow and easy.  Elbows up. Knuckles in a line. This one’s probably going to have some movement on it.

Everybody’s counting on you.  You are the offense.  Don’t let it go to your head, just keep swinging hard and putting the ball in play. Remember when Charlie told you that you had a swing like a West Virginia Black Bear.  What do you think that meant? Probably something nice. He said it nice when he said it.

Just keep your head in the game, focus, and swing through the ball. Squish the bug. Follow through. Step in the right direction. Execute.  Execute.

Quick bat quick bat quick bat quick bat

….ah, ding-dong it.
