J.D. Martinez knows a thing or two about hitting.

Prior to the Boston Red Sox’s series against the Colorado Rockies, the slugger broke down the difference the higher altitude in Colorado plays and how it could affect the team’s offense. Coors Field is known as a hitter-friendly ball park, but the high altitude could have other effects on the players as well.

Before Tuesday night’s game, Martinez broke down what the team has to do at Coors Field to be successful. To hear what he had to say, check out the video above from “Red Sox First Pitch,” presented by Men’s Wearhouse.
