  1. Thanks again for the great interview David! It’s good to hear a leadoff-type hitter talk about his approach in such an intelligent and measured way.

  2. From this interview, Kemp is clearly one of the smarter players in the minors. The way he discusses how he wants to improve and how he has a firm grasp on what makes him valuable to a team makes me think he will be the typical overachiever, and with the height issue I’m sure that will be exaggerated to a crazy degree. Will be fun to follow his path to the show.

  3. Hearing him address BABIP and OBP specifically, as two of the more important parts of his game, brings an enormous smile to my face.

  4. “Batting average on balls in play is also higher when you hit it on the ground.”

    Wow. After that interview, it seems like Kemp is a bit of a fangraphs user himself.

  5. I honestly feel like the coaching staff of Vanderbilt has helped their players understand some of the basics of BABIP more so than other collegiate programs, and helped develop a further understanding of what it takes to be a good baseball player.

    I commend Kemp for being able to understand and put to use this information. I hope the next generation of baseball players continue to have a deeper understanding of how Baseball works.
