Pat Caputo has an interesting article about Brandon Inge today. According to the article, Brandon Inge once upon a time hit the ball hard. Then Phil Garner told him to change his swing.
That was only four years ago, but it might as well have been 40 after all Inge has been through.
It was before former Tigers manager Phil Garner took one look at Inge’s batting stroke and told him there was no way he could hit like that in the major leagues. “All they’ll do is pound him inside with fastballs,” Garner said.
