Doug Bernier: “Hi guys. Today we got a treat for you. We’re here with my man Eric Farris.
This is a guy I’ve played with the last few years, awesome teammate, great hitter, plays all over the field, now he plays out on the grass in the outfield. Came up with the Brewers, Big Leagues with them… a fresh face for you guys to talk about a little pre-game routine.
Eric, what do you like to do pre-game wise, what do you like to do to get ready for the day?”
“Well first off, first and foremost, when I come down to the cage I like to get some work off the tee, get loose. I have a routine – somewhere between 10 and 20 swings, before I get into flips and batting practice.
I like to come in and start working right side of the field, gradually work my way toward the middle. I like to set my ball up on the tee in a certain position where I’m hitting the laces at the top and inner third of the baseball to make sure I stay inside of everything.
And, I mean, the batting tee for me is simply get my body ready, get my swing ready and warmed up so I’m ready to turn it on for batting practice.”
