The term "Tweener" is used in the baseball world to describe the soft hit ball that goes in no mans land between the pitcher and the first basemen and it is probably one of the plays that gets messed up the most in the game. Coach Chuck Hernandez describes the proper way to field the "Tweener" in this segment, with good communication being one of the keys to its success. Make sure you are practicing this play and every time a ball is hit to the right side of the infield you as a pitcher are making the move to go over and cover first base.
