"My first year, I was just going out there and swing, but I've gotten better and better," Schoop said. "I still have a lot of room to grow and room to get better. … I think it's [getting] more at-bats, getting more confidence. And Scott helps me a lot. He gets me on a game plan. Every pitcher that comes in, he says, 'Schoopy, this guy likes to throw outside. He will show you in, but he won't throw it for a strike.' And [with] those kind of things, you go in there with a plan, trying to achieve a plan for you to be successful, not just to go in there and swing. It's knowing, 'OK, this guy likes to use his curveball [in a] 2-2 [count]. Be ready for it, but still stick on his fastball.' Those kind of things, they make you better. Even if you fail, you had a plan in there."
