I'm looking for some advice on how to cover the bag at 2nd and 3rd. I've been told the only way to do cover a bag and receive a throw is to straddle the bag. I understand this is a good method when a baserunner is trying to steal and there's a tag play. How should a fielder cover the bag on a force play, receiving a throw for another infielder or from an outfielder. Should she still straddle the bag or play it more like a first baseman? My players are 7th and 8th grade girls.
