Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"Not every guy has that in their repertoire (Max Kepler homered off a changeup, a slider and a fastball). That's not the kind of hitter some guys are. Every guy has strengths and weaknesses. But Max stays on the ball and sees the ball so well that it kind of gives him the ability to hit different pitches, even if it's not something he's looking for. He has that knack for being on time, putting good swings on it." - Minnesota Twins Manager (2019-Today) Rocco Baldelli (Do-Hyoung Park, 06/06/2019, Kepler joins Ted Williams with this rare feat , Source )
