Here is an exclusive video report about the pregame exorcism of bad offensive mojo that the players performed:
There is a mistake in the commentary on this video - after two walks and three homeruns, the 66ers recorded a walk and a strikeout. The commentator says that the Rawhide's defense was not involved in the game until the 6th batter, but it was actually not until the 8th batter of the bottom of the first inning that a flyball to LF involved the defense.
Watch that and understand that this approach could go organization-wide if it continues to show such effectiveness. Cannot hurt anymore than whatever the big club is doing at the moment. Tuesday morning, on our internet radio show LunchTime HaloTalk, we had a full report from Arrowhead Credit Union Park in San Bernardino where the Inland Empire 66ers (the Angels Single-A team) played the Visalia Rawhide Monday night... and it was Bloggers Night at the ballpark! Listen AT THIS LINK to the archive version of the show that was Live today at 11:00 AM.
