Does an infielder just stand around kicking dirt until the ball gets hit to him?
A good infielder is mentally engaged on EVERY play, whether the ball is hit his way or not.
This mini-course is about much so more than just knowing where to be...
Former Major League infielder helps players learn to think ahead through game situations.
Getting players used to thinking through situations will make not only make the infielder more successful (because he'll consistently be in better positions to make plays, and therefore more valuable to his team)...
...but it will ALSO make the entire game more fun!
Because like most sports, infield is a lot more fun when you understand the strategies and "chess match" behind every single play.
Stop being a bored by-stander. In baseball, there is a purpose for every pitch, every position player's positioning, every sign or decoy sign.
With deeper understanding, you can start to predict pitches and moves and - the fun part is - knowing how to execute WITH CONFIDENCE.
