Good.

Yea, I try to keep action in a contained space as much as possible. But with baseball, it's a challenge. Going from batter to outfielder is about a 160 degree swing, and further if I am covering from the 1st base side and it's hit long to the right fielder.

Undersood.


>Perrone, how old are you?

43. With high miles.

My dad would laugh at that. He passed last year at 91, but still worked out with his dumbbells every week.

>Most people cannot even hold out an empty hand very long.

My shoulders are pretty weak comparatively, but I'm pretty strong overall. Former bodybuilder/weightlifter.
