Rob Manfred talks surge in power hitting and pitching on Fantasy Sports Radio

MLB commissioner Rob Manfred joined Fantasy Sports Radio on Tuesday to discuss several topics, including a surge this season in power, both on the offensive and defensive side.

“Today’s game is about power on both sides, strike outs for pitchers, and home runs for batters,” Manfred told Jim Bowden and Craig Mish. “I think some of the things that have happened on the defensive side of the ball in terms of shifts has encouraged people to alter their swings to get more home runs, because that’s the only place they can reach base safely.”
