For the first time in his life, Matt Hershey is the designated hitter.
It's not too unusual, as he has been batting since he first played T-ball more than a decade ago. The Timber Creek senior conceded that he likes his role, but said it is weird not to play the field.
"You've got to make sure that you contribute when you go up to bat," Hershey said.
Hershey has been doing so thus far for the Chargers. After platooning in right field last year, Hershey has spent the beginning of this year as the DH from the No. 2 spot in the order.
