Ryan Howard tells us how to field a ground ball and specific underhand flip technique to pass a ball to a pitcher covering first base. Ryan talks about having a stiff wrist, positioning the feet and aligning the body with the base. Ryan prefers fielding the ball low, staying low and then moving high with the toss, following the throw toward the bag...keeping the leg back on the throwing arm. This will increase the accuracy and get those critical outs.
