You’ve seen that thing, Rowand’s batting stance. Of course you have. If you’ve ever watched a Giants game in person or on TV, you’ve seen it… You might have to clear the room or cover the eyes of womenfolk and small children when Rowand comes up to bat, but you’ve seen it. And well, as you know, Rowand’s batting stance is in a class (or is it crass?) by itself.
First, as he settles, bowlegged, in the batter’s box, he does some sort of retro homage to Elvis the Pelvis (now there was a nickname) as he bends his knees and seems to slowly gyrate his hips.
Then he holds his bat outward, at groin level, parallel to the ground.
And then he wags the bat, slowly, while continuing to stand bowlegged and undulate his hips.
And this goes on for … well, a beat too long to avoid an NC-17 rating if it were a movie.
