learning the game at highschool

“I definitely didn’t plan on hitting this well. I know that later on, I’m not going to go anywhere with hitting, so I’m messing around with hitting. Coach [Jeff Martin] said I was going to start in the outfield this year, so I’m having fun in the batter’s box.”

Josh Hader to WashingtonPost.com

I could hit, but pitching was what I loved. I wanted to be the best at it. Learning from Tony Saunders that offseason helped me gain more knowledge about doing it, too.
