How to Turn double plays as an infielder in baseball
This collection of instructional videos from BaseballRox will help you develop your infield mechanics in the sport of baseball. These baseball videos are aimed to help young players and coaches improve their performance on the field.
Turning a double-play with good footwork to quickly reach the ball and good throwing technique to get the ball to a base is the focus of one of the videos.
Other videos teach the "flip and follow" method for a 2nd baseman fielding balls that forces him to move toward second base, his throwing target and the "drop step" method for a 2nd baseman fielding balls as he moves away from second base, which is his throwing target. Still another video discusses the best position and motion for a shortstop to catch a ball from the second baseman and turn a double play.
