Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"One of the keys to hitting the outside strike is when to attack it. You don't necessarily have to swing at it. That's the pitcher's pitch. Balls down the middle and on the inside part of the plate is where hitters have most success. Obviously, with two strikes you have to protect, but until then, try to get something better to hit." - Jay Bell
