To return to form, Schwarber knows he’s got to learn to use the whole field while hitting.
“I want to work the middle of the field, do things like that,” Schwarber Jerseys Supply told the Tribune. “I don’t want to be known as just a swing-and-miss kind of guy. I want to be a guy who hits .300 and can hit home runs, but a guy who can hit .300 first.”

In the meantime, Schwarber is remaining positive about his plight.
“This is a part in your career where you figure out who you really are, and I’m not the one who is going to back down from a challenge. I embrace it,” he said.
