When I think of David Justice, the first word that comes to mind is swing. With a swing of the bat, Justice made fans forget the comments he made about them prior to game 6 of the 1995 World Series- and winning the Series, as it would be, on the very same swing- and his Braves career would end with a separated shoulder while swinging at a Denny Neagle change-up in May of 1996. It was a swing that Lou Pinella once compared to Ted Williams, and one that would have spoken about more if he wasn't a contemporary of Griffey Jr.
