You know I've seen that enough -- and look for that and in the zone. First pitch change. Justin wanna you know and if you if you it is so once you pitch versed in the in you know threw -- fastball close to me and they would do something with -- Salty had gone through a little bit of a spell there year old for 21 you busted out with a home run.
