Andre Dawson And That Intimidating Stare…
Two Words : That Stare
That supreme look of intense concentration prior to each pitch. I have no doubt in my mind that this very intimidating look on Andre’s face made more than 1 pitcher get nervous while preparing to throw a baseball by ‘The Hawk’.
As I watched Andre’s focus, both live at Cubs games and on television, his concentration level came across in the same manner – Intense. The power behind his swing. The speed of the bat whipping through the strike zone. The crack of the bat and ball colliding in mid-air. And that perfect follow through as he drove the ball… All of that started at each at-bat with ‘that stare’.
‘That stare’ has been brought to you by 1981 Donruss.
