Tyler Flowers credits turnaround to hard work, not goggles


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/5/2014) White Sox catcher Tyler Flowers has been on an offensive tear the last few weeks, batting .458 with one triple, three home runs, six doubles and 13 RBI in his last 15 games.

His hot streak began around the time he started wearing sport goggles, but Flowers said that's not the reason for his success.

"I’m just trying to keep working," Flowers said. "I started doing a couple things a little bit different that I hadn’t really done before and I looked at other good hitters around the league and they all seem to do it. 

"I’m trying to be downhill a little more. I’m trying to make a positive move toward the pitcher with the stride. I have a tendency to kind of want to stay back and that tends to make me collapse a little bit more on the back side.  When it’s there it’s pretty good and when it’s not, it’s not very good. It’s still something I’m working on and the majority of good hitters out there do that and I realized I hadn’t been doing for a while now. I’m still trying to get comfortable with it."
