Batting Stance Guy takes on Tribe


If you haven’t seen the batting stance guy yet, he’s become a minor YouTube sensation among baseball nerds by videotaping himself imitating the batting stances of countless major league ballplayers. He’s sort of like that geeky Star Wars kid, but with a plastic bat and more grace. He’s now taken on the roster of Cleveland Indians, past, present, and fictional, and by our untrained, uncoordinated eye, pulled off the stances of Albert Belle, Kenny Lofton, and Jim Thome with aplomb. – Vince the Polack
