In the outfield stands a boxer: Nick Swisher's "boxing regimen"


What did Nick Swisher in the offseason to prepare himself to defend the Yankees' World Series crown? He got in the ring. Swisher spent the offseason in California training with a "boxing regimen" that left him twelve pounds lighter.
"It's amazing to see how much boxing translates into a baseball swing, with the movements of your hip and your torso, and the concentration on your core. For me, man, you go a couple of rounds and I never knew three minutes was that long."

No word if Swisher plans to enter one of those "celebrity boxing" competitions. Opposing pitchers might want to make a note that Swisher's not the Yankee to throw a bean-ball at.
