Re: choking up to make contact...
Everyone keeps saying choking up gives the batter more "control." Can someone please define "control?" If you can't handle the bat at its normal length, then you should be using a smaller bat to begin with.
...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.
