OKLAHOMA CITY - St. Louis Cardinals left fielder Matt Holliday has worked with several hitting coaches he respects. But throughout his career, his No. 1 hitting confidant has been his brother, Josh, Oklahoma State's first-year baseball coach.
“He's the one I trust the most with my swing,” Holliday said. “He's who I go to. He's seen me since I was a kid. He watches all my games. If something doesn't feel right, something is off, or I'm trying to make an adjustment, he's the one I call or fly him in.”
Holliday has spent the past month working with Josh. Matt purchased a small house in Stillwater where he and his wife, Leslee, and their three children have lived.
“I took this opportunity with him being back in Oklahoma,” Holliday said. “My wife's family is from here. This was a great chance to work with Josh and spend some time with family. Josh has great expertise in both the mechanical and mental side.”
