Have you ever wondered about what certain pitchers think about certain hitters? In a recent interview that appeared in Slam Baseball on April 26, 2000, the interviewer asked TCU alumnus Jeff Zimmerman who was the toughest hitter he ever faced he replied:
"Last year it was Roberto Alomar. He adjusted phenomenally to all three of my pitches and he was a very tough out, he was a smart hitter and he had a plan up there and he just wasn't up there hacking and he would hit according to the situation and I really struggled with him last year." - Jeff Zimmerman
