Most MLB hitters hate swinging at pitches out of the strike zone. They don’t want to waste a single pitch during an at-bat.
Yankees first baseman Luke Voit took that a step further by fouling a pitch off that went behind his head.
That’s ridiculous. It just wasn’t Luke’s night on Wednesday night. He went 1-for-5 as the designated hitter in the Yankees 7-5 win over the Orioles.
When it’s not your night, it’s not your night. A foul ball on a pitch behind your head means that it’s not your night.
