The team did it as a team, with a different hero every night, and people who followed that team will remember Homer Bush, the author of this book.
Homer had the difficult job of being someone who didn't play every day, yet despite not being a part of the daily lineup, he hit very well that season putting up an impressive .380 batting average in 78 plate appearances.
After he was traded to the Blue Jays the following year, where he earned the starting job, he hit .320.
He has since served as a hitting coach in the Padres organization, and basically, he knows hitting.
This book is written well, and goes into a detailed explanation about many facets of hitting, arguing that hitters should look for pitches low in the zone, as a means of upping their numbers. He talks about how sabremetrics can be overrated and why, and gives some thoughts on the shift that is hurting so many lefty batters today. He also gives some hitting tips as well.
The book is short, and definitely worth the time it takes because of the discussion it will generate.
I recommend it.
