Rockies | Carney Lansford wants hitters to use whole field

Colorado Rockies hitting coach Carney Lansford said he prefers his hitters to use the whole field, according to The Denver Post's Dave Krieger. "But my approach is totally different. Don was a pull-type hitter. I like my hitters to use the entire field. In my opinion, that makes them much tougher outs. Nobody likes home runs more than me, but trying to force a home run, trying to swing for a home run every at-bat, doesn't work. What it does is make you very easy to pitch to," Lansford said.
