Kirk Nieuwenhuis: Low-Ball hitter

I described Kirk Nieuwenhuis on last week’s podcast as a deadly low-ball hitter. This is a swing from his MLB debut on Saturday on his second hit – a clean line drive single into right field. The pitch is in Nieuwenhuis’ happy spot: down in the zone.

Pretty.

 

Nieuwenhuis talked to Kevin Burkhardt about some of the emotions of his debut, his best attributes as a player, and the best all-time butchering of his name in the video clip below.
