Any good baseball player will tell you that one key to hitting success is bat control. If that was the only key, Johnny Burke might be in the Hall of Fame.
Burke is a Central Massachusetts athletic trainer who apparently had some spare time this offseason to perfect some pretty amazing bat tricks.
OK, so those are all impressive, but Burke saved the best for last.
None of these moves would translate into actual success on a baseball field, of course, but that doesn’t make them any less awesome. Just ask ESPN’s Michelle Beadle, who tried with little luck to replicate the impressive feat of coordination.
