Bichette Wants To Keep Hitting
"I guess there's not a lot of people who can say they have two [championship] rings at 18 years old. I was just lucky enough to be on two teams with that much talent.
"I had a blast; awesome team, awesome coaching staff. There's nothing better than having a first year like that."
Bichette, a supremely confident young man, had somewhat envisioned having that kind of success in his first year.
"I was definitely shooting for what I had and maybe more but there was no telling because it was my first pro season and all," he said. "Hopefully I can do a little better next year."
It's going to be difficult to improve on a .342 batting average and .951 OPS, but he believes that he could have had a better year this past season.
"I got off to a slow start this year obviously. I went 3-23 or something like that. I think that needs to change next year.
"I think I did alright at third base but I think I can get a little bit quicker, a little lighter on my feet, and get to some of those balls that I didn't get to you this year."
Not resting on his laurels by any means, the 18-year old slugger is getting ready to get back to work at Instructs.
"I imagine as soon as I show up they'll have something for me to work on," he said of Thursday's first day of mini-camp. "I just want to get as good as I can on what they think my weakness is right now. That's how you get better and improve your weaknesses, that's what I'll be working on."
If he had his choice, however, Bichette, a true student of the game, would like to continue mastering the art of hitting.
"If it were up to me I'd hit all of the time," he said. "That's what I would want to do the most. I think they're going to be working with me on some sort of defensive aspect; throwing, movement, etc. That's fine too."
