The Ole Ball Game

Extra Bases Right Field ~ Runner On First

In this double cutoff, extra bases right, runner on first, each player has a specific assignment within the situation.

  • P: Go to a spot in foul territory, between HP and 3B. When you see where the throw will be going, backup that base

  • C: Cover HP

  • 1B: Into the infield as the cutoff man

  • 2B: First cutoff out

  • SS: Second cutoff out

  • 3B: Cover 3B

  • LF: Cover 2B

  • CF: Go towards RF

  • RF: Chase ball down, make a strong throw "through" the cutoff to the base called

Double Cutoff Tips ~ From the Dugout

  • The SS and 2B need to anticipate the flight of the ball, move their feet to get in position to receive the ball, turning to throw as they make the catch, not turning after they make the catch.
  • It is all about quickness and speed. Every delay in the relay means lost steps on the runners.
