… in our coaching staff, that is.
Dave Magadan officially becomes the Sox’ new hitting coach.
It’s teaching a mindset, teaching them: ‘don’t be afraid to get to two strikes.’ If it’s a player that has an aptitude for learning, he can apply those lessons and get better. When you’re young, in your first year, you’re trying to hit the big home run, get base hits, make the club every at-bat. It’s our job to teach them to grow beyond that point. We’ve got a great teacher in Dave Magadan; his whole theory is that it’s OK to get to two strikes.
