#Bats

He won't make this team. He's a guy that's taking the extra at-bats, and I think it's been really good for him and us, but he's working at a new position and the guys ahead of him [need to play]. I'm not going to put him on the bench [to be a] part-time player.

You see a kid like Justin-Siena's Brett Wallace (who hit 12 homers in 75 at-bats last season as a high school senior) you are going to be curious. (In) the majors, there are actually very few guys with plus power. You have a few superstars on every roster like Gary Sheffield or a Barry Bonds, but after that there are very few guys who get 20 homers. Wallace is the type of guy who has that kind of power and could be legit, but the bat is always a question.
Charles Scott
#Bats

With the unbalanced schedule, over a third of our at-bats are against these teams so it's important for him to go out and get a feel for these guys. Obviously we don't expect anybody to hit .450, but the best thing you can do is keep running him out there and letting him have good at-bats.
Michael Young
#Bats

I feel bad for (Landon) because he doesn't get the at-bats that he would've gotten. Outside of that, I don't worry about Harrington or any of our pitching.

Ron Gardenhire
You can't be a good hitter off the bench unless you get some at-bats. You can't just sit there and get one at-bat a week or one at-bat every three days. He's been on a lot of different avenues in the big leagues and done a lot of different jobs with a lot of different teams, and he knows how to handle himself.
Ron Gardenhire
#Bats

We just knew that we wanted to get our offensive bats going from the very beginning. I think I wanted it a lot, too, because this is region play and we haven't beaten Spanish Fork in high school ball since I was a freshman. I just wanted it really bad.
Chelsey Brown
#Bats

He's a highly skilled player. Obviously, his credentials speak for themselves. We just need to get him some at-bats so we can assess where he is and where he starts next year.
Deric Ladnier
#Bats

Morales is a kid that gets limited at bats but he picked up three hits and the big grand slam. Clay (Glover) hit the ball hard four times today and we need to find a way to get him in the lineup. We have three or four guys that are really (designated hitters), so we have to be able to get his bat out there on a daily basis.
Mark Pollard
