One solution to this was that he practiced hitting for hours on a class D minor league team. He also changed his game by becoming a switch hitter. Another solution to his problem was that he developed his skills at the short stop position he continued working on switch hitting. Also, each session he trained for the major leagues he would practice 30 minutes hitting the ball, and 90 minutes focused on his thinking and attitude. His last solution was to get a new talent.
