Favs: Bagwell (copied his stance a tad, it gives strong balance, however not enough pop) Rowand, Soriono, Frank Thomas, Ichiro and THE Tony Gwynn

Least Favs: Chuck Knoblach (its baseball, not billiards) A-Rod (good stance but annoying) Matsui (very annoying), Dusty Baker (watch old footage, its really bad)

Funny ones: Mark Grace--I liked his swagger and his face every time, lol it really cracks me up

Craig Biggio-you wanna know why he got the most beanballs? Look how he prepares for one.

I'm surprised to see I think only one other person mentioned him, but what about Julio Franco? Little league coaches around the country cringed every time a kid would try to imitate father time at the plate.
