Nick Swisher’s acting days didn’t end with that episode of How I Met Your Mother. Yesterday Swisher filmed a promo spot asking fans to vote for him on the final all-star ballot.
“I’m a one-take wonder,” he told reporters after the game.
What grabs my attention about Swisher this season is that he’s stuck with the changes he made in spring training. He said in March that he wanted to make more consistent contact, hit for a higher average, and he’s done exactly that. He’s never before hit higher than .262, but this year he’s at .293 with what would be the highest slugging percentage and second highest on-base percentage of his career.
UPDATE, 3:50 p.m.: Swisher leads in the first update.
