Kevin Youkilis Ditches Old Batting Stance For Wider, More Athletic ‘Linebacker’ Position (Video)

Like many players who make the move over to that team in the Bronx, Kevin Youkilis has gone through a drastic transformation.

Youkilis unveiled his new batting stance in a video interview with the YES Network. The new Yankees third baseman described it as “a wider, more athletic ‘linebacker’-type foot position to achieve better balance.”

Youkilis will also discontinue the beard fans are accustomed to seeing. The New York Yankees enforce its players to be clean cut and dressed properly — remember Johnny Damon?

Check out Youkilis’ new batting stance below.
