Re: Aggressiveness at the plate

Give the game ball at the end of each game to the most aggresive hitter. Probably wouldn't base it on actually hitting the ball and would maybe give it to a kid that goes down swinging hard during at bats or hitting the ball hard somewhere. If you really wanted to motivate them you could try an autographed game used Pujols or Ramirez bat...
