I think I was able to make contact when I went to swing.” I said the response.

In the live BP of the day against 4 pitchers, 7 swings against a total of 20 balls. It seems that I got a response. “I was able to judge the strike and the ball relatively. I think I was able to make contact when I went to swing for a good ball.”
