    Q&A with Toronto hitting coach: Chad Mottola(?!?!??!)

    I either didn't know or I knew and forgot but Chad Mottola is a hitting coach. For the Blue Jays. In MLB! Check it out here.

    Interesting point!

    As I was playing, a lot of guys were throwing information at me, just hoping something would stick. By the end of the year I had tried seven different things, and had actually gone backwards. That’s my biggest fear: getting a player to do something but not understand the why. I want them to keep learning, and keep building and the days they ask why are the days we‘re getting places.

    You know, I think old "Not Derek Jeter" Mottola may have a good point. He knows from experience that too much information, or the wrong information, can be detrimental to a hitter. On the other hand, a more polished and successful hitter who didn't require much instruction may not be able to coach youngsters from that same perspective.
