    BSG you gotta check out Jeff Larish coming up for the Tigers. He’s a statue at the plate, almost as good as Tettleton!

    Awesome! If you ever do the Tigers again, try to get one of the wiggle that Ruppert Jones from the ’84 team used to do.
    Also, I’d love to see a clip of your favourite 5 or 10 stances.

    I remember mocking Johnny Wockenfuss as a kid and I remember his bat and hands way up over his head and his left foot pointing to the catcher

    Not to be a critic … Great on the current Tiger plyers. Tramm, Gibby, Tettleton were classic … Phillips, Fryman, Fielder, and Evans could probably use a second-take.

    Love the idea though. Keep it up and good luck to you!

    Didn’t quite get Wockenfuss right without the classic, unmistakable hand wiggle.

    Please add Dick McAuliffe to your routine. He had one of the most unique batting stances of all-time.

    Thanks,

    The Tettleton could have been even slower. Sometimes I swear that time had stopped as there could be no other reason for him to be taking so long.

    good but you completely missed the pelvic action magglio has where he sticks his junk over the plate for unknown reasons before he gets in the stance

    Tettleton though used to him ‘em on the right field roof on a regular basis at the old Tiger Stadium though, but I remembered him being having a very secretive batting stance lol

    He left out the Wockenfuss right hand wiggle on the bat?

    Funny s@#t. Cecil Fielder needs work. Its surprisingly hard to master. Its all about his bat placement, bat hitch and footwork.

    Although I’m a Cubs fan, I want to see the 91 Reds lineup. Don’t ask me why, but Eric Davis, Chris Sabo, and Barry Larkin, and Hal Morris…doesn’t get better than those guys stances.

    One of my favorite Tiger swings was Tito Fuentes…When he first walked up to the batter’s box, he’d bounce the bat handle off the plate and it would flip back into his hands.
