I've never seen someone change from a completely standing up stance to a Ricky Henderson crouch during the season, but maybe it has happened in a few rare instances, I guess.
If the players were guaranteed to have a consistent vertical strike zone all year, wouldn't it make it easier for them to adjust?
How many players don't adjust their stance?
My guess is you don't know and I don't know.
Anecdotal evidence bears no weight in this as far as I'm concerned, especially since this debate is centered around having what some are calling TRUE data and TRUE results.
