Bill Hall Working to Get Back to 2006 Form for Red Sox


Video technology is an amazing thing. Nowadays, anyone can access nearly any video on any computer anywhere in the world. 

Bill Hall likes video technology and is using his laptop to access videos to help the Red Sox this season, the Boston Herald reports.

The Red Sox utility man has used this offseason to examine every swing he took during the 2006 season with the Brewers, when he had a career year,  hitting 35 home runs while driving in 85 runs for Milwaukee.

"That 2006 season was magical," Hall told the Herald. "It was a lot of fun. I?ve always gone into the offseason trying to make myself a better player than I was the year before. That hasn?t happened the last few years, but I feel I?m on the right track. I?m more mature, and I know more about my swing and the game. Hopefully, that will help me get back to what I used to be."

Hall developed some bad habits after suffering an ankle injury in 2007 and is hoping to find his stroke again by studying his 2006 swing.

The Red Sox are counting on Hall to give them a boost off the bench. The utility man has played six positions in his major league career and hopes to give manager Terry Francona more options.

"I talked to Tito about it," Hall told the Herald. "He told me I didn?t have to worry about playing time, because he?d get me plenty of at-bats and there?d be plenty of places for me to play."

The 29-year-old is excited about the upcoming season.

"I?ve never had the opportunity to play for a team that has a chance to win the World Series every year," Hall told the Herald.
