    Local Kid Helps Creswell Rediscover Old Stroke
    Wednesday, January 8th, 2059
    Randy Creswell has always given back to his hometown community of Dublin, Ireland. That's why every offseason, he appears at a local baseball clinic to help young baseball players learn the game.

    But this offseason, a student and fan became the teacher.

    After Creswell showed 12-year-old Anthony Youngly the 'proper' batting stance and swing, Youngly responded by saying, "But that's not what you do!"

    After the Dublin Distillers second baseman laughed him off, Youngly pulled out his phone and pulled up an old video of Creswell taking an at bat just a couple of years earlier during a game.

    After watching a few more videos, the surprised Creswell sheepishly admitted that the kid was right.

    "My approach has noticeably changed since I came up in the league a few years ago. My swing has become shorter and isn't nearly as natural," Creswell said.

    When asked what he planned to do after spring started, the 2B was adamant.

    "I want to get back to basics. It may have taken a local kid to pull me out of poor hitting mechanics but now I'll be working harder than ever to get back to where I once was. In the meantime, I'll be sending that kid a personal thank you and signing up to do a baseball clinic in Dublin, Ireland again next year," he said. "After all, who knows what I'll learn about myself."

    The whole story is interesting. The game was trying to kill his ratings in 58 and 59 and he clearly rebounded.

    It was a long war but we made it. Reaction in the Dublin front office as Dohbama Care is finally repealed.
