The Ole Ball Game

Single Right Field ~ Runner On First

single right field, runner on first

In this single right field, each player has a specific assignment within the situation.

  • P: Back up 3B

  • C: Stay at plate

  • 1B: Stay at 1B, possible pick of runner with too wide a turn

  • 2B: Cover 2B

  • SS: Cutoff between RF and 3B

  • 3B: Cover 3B

  • LF: Back up 3B

  • CF: Go toward right field, tell him where to throw

  • RF: Fields the ball, throw "through" the cutoff to 3B
