Couldn't find this previously posted via search. For the least marketable skill in America, I find this rather glorious.

And yes, he does them for all the teams.

LOL. He's actually pretty good at them. I like Eric Davis'. :O)

I agree that Sean Casey and Eric Davis are classic. Haven't laughed that hard in awhile.

That was worth a few chuckles. Good stuff. :thumbup:

Even to this day, I emulate Chris Sabo's pre-swing ritual when swinging a bat. :)

He forgot to adjust his batting gloves during his Sean Casey imitation. That's kind of a big thing to miss.

That guy is very talented.

Concepcion used to make the "sign of the cross" before he entered the batters box which would have been cool to see him imitate.

tremendous stuff -- not only the stances, but the swings too!

A few months back there was a local news story on a three year old who could mimic the batting stances of every Reds hitter. They showed clips of him alongside various Reds players, and his batting stances were absolutely spot on (plus the kid could hit too).

Good stuff. The follow throughs for Griffey and Dunn were very nice.

I liked the Perez and Concepcion swings. It looked like they might've fallen down on the follow through.

Looks like he always saves the funniest one for last. His Craig Counsell (Brewers) is pretty darn hilarious too.

Thanks for posting this, vp.

I think Johnny Bench is right on target.

If only he had gotten the sign of the cross for Concepcion, oh and maybe found a double knobbed-bat, it would have been perfect. I'll second the notion that Sean Casey needed the glove tightening and stretching routine before each at bat.

Craig Counsell's batting stance is hilarious in its own right.

Definitely got Bench down with the bat pointing thing and the scowl on his face.

I can remember as a kid playing whiffle ball with my cousin. We would always play 1979 Pirates against 1976 Reds, mimicking batting stances all the way.
