Question of Day; What's your batting order?

What's on your mind?

Question of the day...

What is your batting order? best hitter to worse, fastest runner to slowest? jersey numbers? lol.

I've seen many pro MLB and College 9apps fastpitch teams go against the tried and true method and get creative with the batting order. For example having the home run hitter bat first so you can get on the board quickly with 1 run, but then that seems like an inefficient use of power..

SOP now in MLB is to put power hitter up 2nd in order (ie Aaron Judge) There are different stats and formulations showing that you want your best run producing hitters to get up as much as possible
