Ryan Howard talks about his approach in the batters box. First Ryan says to understand the situation, know the location of the base runners, the number of outs, etc. Ryan tells us to ensure we have swagger, balanced stance, know what the pitcher may be trying to do, always seeking a good pitch to hit. Batters must know where they can hit, based on location, a nice relaxed stance and using the same routine to enter the box. Ryan encourages hitters to be who you are, but try to make good swings and stay positive.
