      If you’re gonna show Stargell because he pumps the bat like that, then you gotta show Joe Morgan.

              The only thing weird about D'Arnaud's is the fact that he actually got a hit.....

                      Two more from a little further back. The number 1 weirdest batting stance I ever saw belonged to  utility guy/back up catcher John Wockenfuss of the Tigers back in the 70s/80s. Seriously you gotta go look, it was insane. Twisted up feet, head cocked at a weird was almost painful to watch this guy. Number 2 was Dwight "Dewey" Evans who played the outfield for some great Bosox teams along with Rice and Fisk etc. A big guy with a pigeon toed closed stance, I remember that Ted Williams was asked about Evans stance and he said " looking at him bat makes me want to puke" .

                        sheffield had a very violent looking swing.

                              Mickey Tettleton, Julio Franco and Juan Gonzalez all had the strangest stances to me back when I watched them play.

                                Julio Franco is the winner of most weirdest stance

                                  It's not weird if it works, some of these guys are HOFers. You tell them to change what works?

                                    A lot of these, the inital setup is weird, but then when the pitch is coming, they revert back to something more usual to actually swing. I probably worded this terribly.

                                        I’m not a baseball fan. That being said, an out-of-the-park home run is the best play in sports.

                                            Julio looked weird at what he did, but he hit that way for a long, LONG time. And with a 40oz bat too!

                                              +FighterCK Oh, I remember well. Difference is, if memory serves, Julio used a bat 2 ounces heavier than Babe Ruth...which is ridiculous
