Yesterday's Answer

You're on defense. Runners on 1st and 2nd, one out. Dropped third strike, where does the ball go? What is your responsibility at your position (pick a spot for those that play multiple positions).

 

The correct play is:

Catcher blocks the ball & recovers. 1st base is occupied, so batter is out. 

Where does the ball go?

Prior to the pitch, the catcher needs to know the speed of the runners. In the grand scheme of things, a throw, if one is needed, will go to 2nd because the runner at 1st must wait to see if the runner at 2nd goes. BUT, if the runner at 2nd is clearly slower than the runner on 1st, the throw can go to 3rd on an attempt to advance.  

Corner OF's - back up your bags (LF > 3B, RF > 1B)

CF - back up throw to 2B

3B - 3rd base bag

SS - backs up throw to 3B

2B - 2nd base bag and throw from catcher

1B - act as catcher's eyes with a call for runner

P - pumps fist because he just got a strikeout with runners on
