Pasquantino has not slowed down one iota since switching to a wood bat upon entering professional baseball. After a 5-5 day yesterday in which he hit a pair of doubles and a pair of triples in an 8-1 victory for Burlington, Pasquantino is now slashing .285/.366/.582/.948 with 10 HR, 15 doubles, and a pair of triples in 43 games (191 PA). He’s struck out in just 18.3% of his PA and walked in 11%.
Q: Is there anything unique that you do on days that you start? A superstition or anything like that?
