Remember as a kid when you were out in the back yard and you did your best to impersonate your favorite baseball player at bat? Mark Grace was my man. But in some of my tee ball photos I clearly had a thing for Julio Franco’s stance. Don’t ask, I don’t know.
Anyway, this gentleman shares the same love of copy-catting, only he’s, well, not a kid.
I have no idea who he is but he appears to have plenty of time on his hands. These batting stances are fairly dead on. There’s also a video for the Yankees, but I found it much less compelling.
My personal favorite stance: Mo Vaughn. I almost forgot about Big Mo. We can all remember him as the mammoth, baseball-smashing former MVP known as the Hit Dog. He was essentially the original Big Papi. Mo even played first base more often than he didn’t. Commendable.
Also of note, at least one person (aside from his love interests, presumably) thought the Hit Dog was a babe in his day. Interesting.
