Right Field: Charge to back up First Base and get any overthrows to first. Be ready for fouls and short kicks to the right.

Short Stop: Stop the ball and get it to the base at play. Be ready to cover Second Base if Short Field has to leave the base.

Second Base: Play opposite of short stop for additional bunt protection. Back up First Base and be ready to cover Second Base if Short Field has to leave the base. Stay on Second Base if a big kick is expected and have Short Field move back.

Pitcher: Check the field to make sure everyone is ready to play. Stay on the mound to end the play as soon as possible. Cover Home Base if the Catcher has to run out for a short bunt.

Third Base: Charge the short and longer bunts. Left Field or Short Stop will cover the base if you have to run off of it.

First Base: Stay planted on the base. Second Base and Right Field will get the overthrows to you.

Catcher: Charge the short bunts, be on the kickers ass.

Remember:

  • Get the ball back to the pitcher
  • Call your catches
  • Tell your teammates where to throw the ball
  • If you are on base, make sure you are focusing on the first/third base coaches
