Giants hitting coach Hensley “Bam Bam” Meulens has worked hard to help hitters improve this season. On Tuesday at AT&T Park in San Francisco he gave us an update on their progress.
Meulens talked to The Sports Virus about the MLB overall HR record that was broken this week and how that relates to the Giants: “…We don’t have 30-40 home run power and when you see home runs being hit at the record pace in other places and you’re not hitting them, you’re at the same level, you’re like, uh, I don’t know if it’s the ball, the ballpark or the players. In a lot of places the balls are carrying. When we go on the road we hit more home runs than we do at home …We’ve talked about it with some of our guys going into the off-season. I even put some ropes in the cage, where the angles are conducive to more balls in the air in this ballpark. We’re working on it. Hopefully it won’t take long so at least we’ll produce more extra base hits.”
Come back FRIDAY when SF Chronicle columnist John Shea is our guest.
