Rockies | Using curveball machine

The Colorado Rockies hitters recently starting using a curveball machine during batting practice, according to The Denver Post's Troy E. Renck. "It helps lock you into a good swing," OF Ryan Spilborghs said. Hitting coach Carney Lansford is preaching that the team's hitters use the entire field, rather than focusing on constantly pulling pitches. "What the machine forces you to do is let the ball travel and stay through the ball," Lansford said. "I believe that creates good mechanics and more opposite-field hits."
