Notice the elbow coming up for the bad hop
Can't believe you're using Arenado as an example.......I mean come on, what has he ever done before??Notice the elbow coming up for the bad hop
Canyonjoe, coachjd, SB45, and pattar get credit, but yes:What do you think are the ten most important things for an infielder to do?
I'm looking for specific fielding techniques.
They have more time in baseball. I once saw a 3B playing well off the line, backhand the ball and throw from 3 steps in foul territory and throw the guy out. Can that be done off a slapper? If you reverse the footwork Arenado is doing in the video, you can take only one step to throw. It is virtually do or die! Michael Young in the photo doing it my way. One step onto the right foot, and the throw is gone. But the key is touching the right knee to the ground (the down and up stops almost all momentum away from 1st or 2nd).Notice the elbow coming up for the bad hop
Correct, when at all possible get to to the right of the ball a bit and then move through the ball in such a way that your left toe (for a RH) is hitting the ground as you are catching the ball:Canyonjoe, coachjd, SB45, and pattar get credit, but yes:
7) Continuity! Someone mentioned fielding under the left eye. Good! But on a normal speed ground ball, esp. for the SS it works just like a 3rd baseman cutting in front, and continuing at 1B. Start with the GB on the glove-side, step across the ball, field on the left side of the belly-button, and shuffle step in a straight line if possible to 1B.
