Siri has all the answers for Dragons as he bangs his way to record 35-game hitting streak

Jose Siri sure seems to be having fun, stringing to get a 35-game hitting streak for the Dayton Dragons, and fans are starting to get in on the action now that he’s tied the Midwest League record.

He’ll go for the record tonight in Ft. Wayne while playing for the Reds’ Class A team, but some folks are waiting to see what happens before they’re getting creative.

How cool is that?

My phone must be broken, though, because when I asked Siri to show me a hitting machine, up popped a bunch of links to batter training machines. 

Shoulda asked Jose, perhaps.
