With Interleague Play wrapping up in the next week or so, we asked some of the Padres who have experience in both leagues to compare the different game styles. Clayton Richard (White Sox/Padres) and Rob Johnson (Mariners/Padres) give their take on having the pitcher hit. Aaron Cunningham (A’s/Padres – currently with Tucson) weighs in on the opportunity that role players are given in the NL. Finally, Bud Black (coached and played in both leagues) shares his thoughts on the strategy that goes into a National League game.
