What does it mean to be a "slugger?" We all know the answer, don't we?
Being a slugger means gripping it and ripping it. It means hitting the crap out of the ball and not even waiting around to see where it falls.
It means pointing to a spot in center field and then hitting it there. It means putting dents in signs. It means splashing down in McCovey Cove. It means hitting a ball in Cincinnati that comes to rest in Kentucky.
Being a slugger means being the most powerful, terrifying, and exhilarating species of professional athlete in all of sports.
