The batter has three strike zones: his own, the opposing pitcher's, and the umpire's. The umpire's zone is defined by the rule book, but it's also more importantly defined by the way the umpire works. A good umpire is consistent so you can learn his strike zone. The batter has a strike zone in which he considers the pitch the right one to hit. The pitchers have zones where they are most effective. Once you know the pitcher and his zone you can get set for a particular pitch.

He's as good a young player as anyone I've ever seen come into the big leagues. He's tremendous. One of the very best young hitters I ever saw. He's a smart kid and he knows all about hitting. He went to Georgia Tech where he was on the Dean's List, and when I finished talking to him I felt I was on the Dean's List of hitting because he knows plenty, he really does. I asked him my usual questions about all aspects of hitting. I like to get young hitters stirred up to find out what they really know. And he knew everything! He's really a brilliant kid.
