Donald Trump is not here for your easy base hits. You shift, he hits into your shift on purpose.
By sixth grade, Donald’s power as a right-handed hitter was enough that fielders shifted to left field when he batted. “If he had hit the ball to right, he could’ve had a home run because no one was there,” said Nicholas Kass, a schoolmate. “But he always wanted to hit the ball through people. He wanted to overpower them.”
Impressive to be able to pinpoint hits as a sixth grader. Move impressive that he purposefully chose the harder option just to stick it to the defense.
