Acquiring outfielder Yoenis Cespedes from the Oakland Athletics not only lengthened the Boston Red Sox’s lineup, but it also brought the team a batter who’s ideal for Fenway Park.
Cespedes has proven to be a pull hitter, which could be good for the Red Sox. The right-handed Cespedes tends to send most of his hits to the right side of the field, which is ideal at Fenway where right field is massive and doesn’t have a giant wall to rob hitters of home runs.
Hear more about this from Adam Pellerin, Jim Rice and WEEI’s Rob Bradford in the video above.
