1986 Rob Broder

Another Rob Broder card. These things are like Gremlins or rabbits. Or they are Gremlin rabbits, which is really scary.

Check out that stance. When I play baseball I bat and throw right-handed. But I try batting left handed. Always have. Sometimes I can hit the ball far. Like 15 or 20 feet. But when I do bat lefty, to this day, I model my swing like Strawberry's. I think it must be muscle memory.

The other day I asked my nephew that when he plays a sport, if he models his moves or whatever on a professional athlete. His response was softer than crickets. Had no idea what I was talking about.  I guess he's his own "man". Did, or do, you model your stances and sports moves and whatnot off professional athletes. If anyone says Nomar's batting glove batters-box thing, I hate you.

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. I don't think I ever patterned any of my sports moves after anyone in particular, but I did know a pair of brothers way back when who were obsessed with figuring out who all the other kids swung a bat like, and according to them my swing/stance was like Eric Davis'.

  2. Totally. I loved practicing Tony Pena's catching stance... and I didn't even play catcher. I also loved pitching sidearmed like Kent Tekulve.

    P.S. I haven't seen too many Broder cards that actually have Rob Broder's name on them.
