Prev: 1x03 -- Sweetening Swisher's Swing - Nick Swisher (Jul/23/2014)

Barwis and the guys at the gym take on new client Nick Swisher, star slugger for the Cleveland Indians, and a guy known for a big personality and an even bigger salary – $11 million a year. But with Swisher coming off a down season, can Barwis get him into championship shape for the start of spring training?

Barwis ramps up the power of Swisher’s swing with some unorthodox methods like tossing a beer keg on the frozen tundra of Michigan. But Swisher’s attitude may be too much for even him to handle, and Swisher finds himself challenged by a young up-and-comer from the NY Mets with a lot to prove.
