Video: Joey Gallo gets creative to keep up his hitting
Texas Rangers outfielder Joey Gallo is getting creative in his attempts to keep his hitting skills sharp.
Gallo shared a video on social media Saturday that showed him taking swings into a net indoors. He appeared to be swinging from inside his residence in a high-rise building in Dallas.

With players practicing social distancing and not meeting for large gatherings, they have to do what they can to stay in shape and on their game.
The 26-year-old posted consecutive 40-homer seasons in 2017 and 2018. He made the All-Star team last year and had a .986 OPS in 70 games before undergoing surgery for a broken hamate bone. And now he’s even hitting bombs inside his building.
