Last week on Twitter, Cardinals outfielder Dexter Fowler gave himself quite the pep talk.
I will get a hit. I will get a hit. I will get a hit. I will get a hit. I will get a hit. I will get a hit. I will get a hit. I will get a hit. I will get a hit. I will get a hit. I will get a hit. I will get a hit. I will get a hit.— Dexter Fowler #25 (@DexterFowler) April 2, 2018
Fowler did, in fact, get a hit. So, Viva El Birdos has teamed up with Breaking T to create a Fowler ‘I will get a hit’ t-shirt.
