"I do a wide-base drill. That's to focus on my hands, just using my hands," Adolfo said during a recent interview. "Then, I use a narrow-base drill. That's to gain ground for separation. I go to side flips, I go to offside flips, work from middle to right. I go into tee work, and that's it. I have a nice routine going on.

"It has helped me a lot. I don't try to put any pressure on myself. I'm still pretty young, and I believe in what I can do. I believe I can hit. I'm in a much better position now to hit. And seeing the ball better. So go out there, and play hard, and good things will happen."
