Hitting coaches would love for their players to shorten up and put the ball in play in any number or situations. But like all three coaches above said, players don't want to listen. Most sluggers make more in one game than a hitting coach makes all year. What makes you think they are going to listen to him?
LOL the quote says "very few" not none. Read it again. No need to get so upset over someone's opinion dude.
If coaches told the players to choke up they would choke up. Players have to do as they are told. If choking up were such a good idea the players would be made to do it -- they are not. This isn't the 1970's anymore. Things have changed.
