Riegert: “It was the first pitch. I have a one-handed swing. I believe I can swing faster with one hand. I’ve been swinging one-handed since I’ve been a little kid. It’s the best way to hit home runs I think. When I swing with two hands it slows me down. It’s a go-deep-or-go-home type thing. I’m definitely swinging for homers, I always do . . . I think right here I hit a deep fly ball. The other team gave me a tough time a couple of times. One time they told me it was illegal. But it’s not. In fact it’s very legal.”
