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.
