The Ole Ball Game

Extra Bases Right Field

In this double cutoff, extra bases right, no runners on, each player has a specific assignment within the situation.

  • P: Back up 3B

  • C: Stay at Plate

  • 1B: Trail runner to 2B - If the play looks to be at home, move into the infield grass as the cutoff

  • 2B: First out on cutoff

  • SS: Second out on cutoff

  • 3B: Cover 3B

  • LF: Come in to infield

  • CF: Move towards RF

  • RF: Chase down ball, make a strong throw "through" the cutoff to 3B

Double Cutoff Tips ~ From the Dugout

double cutoff tips ~ from the dugout

  • With younger players it works well to have the lead relay keep going out, until the outfielder picks up the ball.
  • With high school players, have them adjust their depth based on the strength of that outfielders arm.

    You ideally want your strongest arm, making the longest throw.
