Respect for Trout




As a huge Sandberg fan I listened to his HOF speech. I even used it as a topic in my speech class in college because of the message he spoke that day, Respect. One of the keys Ryno spoke about was the way guys are hitting home runs today and watching them go out. He said in his day you hit the ball and put your head down and run like you've done it before, Repect the Game. Last night Mike Trout hit a ball that looked to be a home run. Instead of watching it like most hitters do Mike ran hard out of the box and ended up with a triple even though he hit it to Left Field. The only way anyone gets a triple on that hit is to run hard out of the box. How many guys would be stuck on second or even first today because they were busy admiring their hit. I hope our minor leaguers esp Baez was taking notes on how to play the game hard and right.
