Everybody in the Alaska Baseball League is working on something, whether it be a new position, perfecting the changeup or driving the ball to the opposite field.
Peninsula Oilers outfielder Jake Sandlin is working on a new mental approach to the game.
Thus far, the approach is paying dividends. Nine games into the Oilers’ season, Sandlin was hitting just .161. And those nine games were all against nonconference competition, which generally is fortunate to play even .500 ball against ABL foes.
