Fun Fact: The first recorded baseball contest took place in the year 1846. Cartwright's Knickerbockers lost to the New York Baseball Club in a game at the Elysian Fields in Hoboken, New Jersey.
The BaseballRox infield play series starts with the infield ready position. The videos describe good fielding
position and athletic stance for an infielder who is ready make a play on a ground ball. Then, we describe proper
movement and form while approaching a ground ball hit toward an infielder. Good footwork and upper body positioning
The proper stance and footwork for a first baseman as he catches balls from other infielders is the focus of one video.
Turning a double-play with good footwork to quickly reach the ball and good throwing technique to get the ball
to a base is the focus of another video.
Other videos teach the "flip and follow" method for a 2nd baseman fielding balls that forces him to move
toward second base, his throwing target and the "drop step" method for a 2nd baseman fielding balls as he moves
away from second base, which is his throwing target. Still another video discusses the best position and
motion for a shortstop to catch a ball from the second baseman and turn a double play.
