LSU hitting coach, Eddie Smith, stopped by to explain what made this job appealing. Smith said the opportunity to work with Coach Paul Mainieri again and be apart of LSU Baseball history was too good to pass up.
“I think I’ve taken a lot of what I’ve learned from him along the way,” Smith said.
What is his philosophy on hitting?
“Hitters got to believe in what they’re doing,” Smith said. He also believes you have to be able to look at each individual player and see what they can handle. Whether its analytics or watching film.
“This fall will be about seeing what each players need,” Smith said.
Smith said he’s really excited to recruit for LSU and share with families about how Paul Mainieri has effected his life in a positive way.
