Re: choking up to make contact...
I am not sure that the lack of choking up is the problem. It's probably more of an approach problem plus a mechanical problem.
...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.
