Jody Reed talks to us about how the 2nd Baseman feeding the ball to the Shortstop to initiate the double play. Again, Jody reminds us that the primary philosophy is to get the force out at second base, with the out at first as a bonus. Jody demonstrates four separate turn techniques, depending on where the ball is fielded by the second baseman. Each of these techniques builds quickness and enables the turn to be more accurate, using the flip throw, power flip, stroke throw, foot replacement and spin. Each of these techniques, produce more accurate throws and quickness which will increase the number of putouts in the middle.
