In which Gordon Beckham wants to adjust his batting stance

Gordon Beckham believes simply widening his batting stance will help remedy his struggles at the plate. … Beckham, who is batting .205, thought that unnecessary movement was affecting his pitch selection and swing. He worked on changing his stance with hitting coach Greg Walker.“I’m either lunging or behind,” Beckham said. “There’s not an in-between right now. There’s no happy medium for me as of right now, and that’s the issue we’re having.”


“Not mechanical. It’s more my mind,” Beckham explained. “I’m not taking my BP into the game. When I’m getting in the game I feel like I’m a little rushed, I feel like my head is moving a little faster than it should. As opposed to being calm and just sitting in the box and let the ball come to me. I’m going to spread out a little bit, eliminate the lower half a little bit, and that’s going to keep me locked in, a little quieter. Hopefully, that will help me be more accurate with the ball and make better decisions on pitches that are close and not close. I think that should help. I just have to do it in the games. It’s all there.”
